Russian Railways together with the Chinese side are promoting the creation of a new Eurasian transport corridor

The new Eurasian international transport corridor will become an important component of the Silk Road economic belt. This road is of great importance not only for Russia, China and Europe, but also for all large projects that are so necessary for the development of the world economy, President of Russian Railways Vladimir Yakunin said in an interview with Xinhua.

The Russian Railways Company operates the Trans-Eurasian Railway - the Great Siberian Railway. This railway route is today the main land freight route connecting Europe and Asia: wagons with goods leave China for Inner Mongolia (North China) and move west along Europe to the Great Siberian Railway.

The Great Siberian Railway still reached the limit of its transmission capacities 4 a year ago, and the construction of the economic belt of the Silk Road puts forward new requirements for the trans-Eurasian transport highway. In this regard, the transport corridor, starting in the city of Alashankou of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, running through Kazakhstan and Russia, and then going to Europe, now plays an even more important role in Eurasian rail freight.

V. Yakunin noted that the new Eurasian international transport corridor will become an important part of the economic belt of the Silk Road, and RZD jointly with the Chinese side are actively promoting the creation of this corridor. According to him, Russia and China have the opportunity to develop long-term cooperation in this direction.

V. Yakunin showed particular interest in the question of the participation of Chinese enterprises in Russian Railways projects. He said that Railways not only welcomes the participation of Chinese companies in their projects, but the parties have already held a number of substantive negotiations, in particular on railway projects in the Far East.
