The Gan-Europe Express has reached 11 countries
Zhenghe Island is a large-scale and comprehensive service platform for entrepreneurs in China. 2020 Zhenghe Island (Jiangxi) Innovators Annual Meeting will be held in Nanchang, the capital of Jiangxi Province from July 13th to 16th.
Why is the 2020 Zhenghe Island (Jiangxi) Changemaker Annual Meeting held in Jiangxi? Wu Zhongqiong, vice governor of the Jiangxi Provincial People's Government, said at a press conference on the 10th that the current development trend of Jiangxi continues to improve, the policy effects continue to be released, the open system continues to improve, and the industrial foundation continues to be consolidated.
Although it is located inland, Jiangxi has been very open since ancient times. For thousands of years, the province’s porcelain, tea, summer cloth and other trade goods entered the Yangtze River from various waterways and set foot on the Silk Road in Shanghai. In recent years, as a logistics trade carrier and platform for Jiangxi to connect Europe and countries along the “Belt and Road”, the Gan-Europe Express is an important measure for Jiangxi to promote the construction of the “Belt and Road”.
Xie Yiping, director of the Jiangxi Provincial Department of Commerce, said that since last year, Jiangxi has used the port 'three tongs' as a breakthrough point to fully unblock international logistics channels and improve port logistics efficiency. The price difference between rail and sea transportation, water and water transportation and coastal ports has dropped by 60%. The timeliness of customs clearance for goods import and export are 2.6 hours and 3.2 hours faster than the national average respectively. Nanchang Changbei Airport has become the second most popular place for inquiries for international freight in Europe after Shanghai Pudong Airport.
'We started the'Daily Class' from Jiujiang Port to Shanghai Port, and opened up 5'passages to the sea' to Ningbo, Shenzhen, Xiamen, Fuzhou, and Guangzhou. In 2019, 1605 rail-sea intermodal trains will be opened, and the Gan-Europe train has been reached. There are 26 cities in 11 countries and regions along the Belt and Road.' Wu Zhongqiong believes that these have injected strong impetus into the development of Jiangxi's open economy. (Author: Wu Pengquan)
