Vladimir Yakunin said that RZD will develop the railway communication between Russia and China

President of JSC Russian Railways / RZD / Vladimir Yakunin, speaking today at the international conference "The Great Silk Road and the Trans-Eurasian Belt RAZVITIE - Docking", called for the further development of railway communication between Russia and China.

"With the development of trade and economic ties with the countries of the Asia-Pacific region, and first of all with China, the urgency of the development of the eastern range of the Russian railways network increases," Yakunin said. One of the promising areas, he stressed, is the provision of containerized cargo transportation from the northeastern provinces of China, which do not have direct access to the sea, through the Russian ports of the Far East, with subsequent delivery to the south of China, Japan, South Korea and other countries.

In his report, he noted that the volume of traffic through border crossings in communication with China increased compared to the previous year by 2,2 million tons, amounting to 30,5 million tons. Over the five months of this year, this indicator decreased by 7 percent or 821,5 thousand tons compared to the same period last year, reaching 11,7 million tons, including exports - 10,8 million tons / decrease by 5 percent or by 557,3 thousand tons / - 784,5 thousand tons / decrease by 27 percent or by 287,9 thousand tons /.

The head of the Russian Railways also stressed the importance of increasing the throughput and carrying capacity of railways and increasing the volume of international passenger and freight rail traffic between Russia and China and transit through their territories. The process of organizing transportation will also be improved and the work of border crossings will be optimized.
