Post Time: 29/09/2018


At 9:00 a.m. on September 19 in the Czech Republic, the Yiwu-Prague Train of the China Railway Express (CRE) with small commodities from Yiwu arrived at Lovosice Station of Czech Republic, which was the first YTO CRE (YTO: a Chinese Express company named Yuantong) entering the freight yard of the Czech stop along the Belt and Road (B&R). The successful operation of the Yiwu-Prague CRE marks another step in the great improvements of the CRE from Yiwu in marketization, diversification, integration, and internationalization, as well as the new achievement of the construction of a Czech station for the B&R.

Zhu Congjiu, deputy governor of Zhejiang Province; Zhang Jianming, Chinese Ambassador to the Czech Republic; Zdenek Skwaril, member of the Board of Czech Railway Freight; and Wang Jian, acting mayor of Yiwu, attended the arrival ceremony of the YTO CRE entering the Czech station. Zhu greeted the driver of the CRE with a gift. Officers from the Provincial Department of Commerce, the Zhejiang State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, and the Zhejiang Foreign and Overseas Chinese Affairs Office, as well as representatives of Chinese enterprises in the Czech Republic, attended the event.

Zhu stated that the operation of the YTO CRE is the result of mutual cooperation between the YTO Express company and the CRE, which is helping expand freight channels and develop the CRE in terms of marketization, internationalization, and diversification. Additionally, the YTO CRE will effectively promote the growth of import and export trade between Zhejiang and the Czech Republic, as well as with the Central and Eastern European countries. Zhu expressed his hope that citizens from all walks of life will enthusiastically support the development Czech station, and promote the normal operation of the CRE to expand mutual cooperation between China and European countries.

Afterwards, at the Promotional Meeting for Constructing the Czech Station of the B&R and Seminar on Zhejiang Investment in Central and Eastern European Countries, Zhu praised the achievements of CRE and the construction of the Czech station of the B&R, and proposed to accelerate the development of the B&R to further promote economic and trade cooperation between Zhejiang Province and Central and Eastern European countries. Zhu also announced the name of the Czech Station of the B&R as the Czech–Zhejiang Economic and Trade Cooperation Park, which means that the Czech station has officially become an overseas economic and trade cooperation zone of Zhejiang Province.
