Reconstruction of the port Zarubino will promote infrastructure construction in Northeast Asia - Zhao Rui

Reconstruction of the Russian port Zarubino will bring new opportunities to Northeastern China, the Tumenjiang River basin and countries of Northeast Asia, reports Xinhua news agency citing Yu Xiao, director of the Institute for Northeast Asia Studies, Jilin University.

Zarubino is an ice-free Russian port located on the coast of the Primorye Territory of the Russian Federation, in the Trinity Bay, at 60 km from a major transportation junction - Hunchun City (Jilin Province, Northeast China).

Reconstruction of the port of Zarubino will be carried out through cooperation with the province of Jilin. The total investment in the project is estimated at 3 billion US dollars. The annual cargo turnover of Zarubino after the construction of the multifunctional port will reach 60 million tons.

According to the expert, the port of Zarubino opens access to the sea for the Changchun-Jilin-Tumenjiang pilot zone. The planned transport land and sea routes in Jilin province along the China-Russia-Republic of Korea and China-Russia-Republic of Korea-Japan routes pass through Zarubino.

"To join the national strategy of creating the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, Northeastern China must connect railways to the Trans-Siberian Railway and form through water and land routes," says Yu Xiao.

Jilin University Professor Zhao Zhuyi noted that the reconstruction of the Russian port of Zarubino will promote infrastructure construction in Northeast Asia.

In addition, Jilin Province is interested in building high-speed Vladivostok-Hunchun railways and connecting them with the domestic railway network in order to enhance the logistical capabilities of Zarubino, Zhao Ruyu commented.
