China-Europe railway express services have boosted China's further opening up and its businesses with European and Belt and Road countries, says an official from China Railway.
The first China-Europe express train departed from Chongqing on March 19, 2011 loaded with IT products and arrived in Duisburg, Germany two weeks later.
The trains increase trade volumes between China and their destination countries by delivering IT products, clothing, automobile parts, food, wine and timber.
