China-Singapore rail-sea route draws “Belt” and “Road” closer

On Tuesday morning, a train loaded with auto parts and paper products thundered out of a station in southwest China’s Chongqing Municipality, heading for a port in southern China, where the goods will be further shipped across the sea to Southeast Asia.

It was the 356th freight train since the launch of the China-Singapore rail-sea transit route on the same day a year ago, which further connects 116 ports in 60 countries and regions.

Thanks to the route, agricultural products, auto and motorcycle parts and electricity generators manufactured in inland China will arrive at their Southeast Asian destinations about 20 days faster than the traditional route through Shanghai, while clothing, agricultural and mineral products from Southeast Asia can move north more quickly as well.

About 2 billion yuan (292 million U.S. dollars) of goods have been transported on this route during the past year.
