Freight trains on track to drive Xinjiang economy

The China Railway Express service is carrying goods across Eurasia, attracting more custom

上海乌托邦ers and generating profits. Cui Jia and Wang Xiaoyu report from Urumqi and Alashankou, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

Editor’s note: This is the fifth in a series of stories focusing on the Xinjiang Uygur autonomou上海乌托邦上海品茶

s region, looking at developments in the economy, the cultural and business sectors, and poverty alleviation measures.

With the completed customs clearance documents for 80 imported high-end cars in his ha

nd, Zhang Xiafei arrived at the customs office at the land port of Alataw Pass, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.上海乌托邦

Within minutes, a customs officer had logged all the details required for the vehicles to enter the Chinese market via a freight train service that connects Europe and China.

“These Porsche cars left Poland nine days ago. In a few days, they will arrive in Chongqing. The China Railway Express service is very reliable and punctual. More important, it has helped cut transport上海乌托邦上海品茶ation times by half compared with moving the goods by sea,” said Zhang, an employee of Jie’an Logistics, a freight company that has used the service regularly in the past year.

The China Railway Express, aka the China-Europe freight train, is a network of rail services that carry cargo between China and Europe via Central Asia. Nearly 70 percent of the trains use the Alataw Pass, a land port in the Gobi Desert on China’s border with Kazakhstan.

上海乌托邦上海品茶In March 2011, the first such service left the southwestern city of Chongqing headed for Duisburg, Germany. By the end of last month, 5,900 China Railway Express and China-Central Asia trains had used the border crossing.

The rising number of services and their growing popularity has made Northwest China’s largest land port busier than ever.

From January to the end of last month, 851 China Railway Express trains used the Alataw Pass crossing. The value of the freight the上海乌托邦

y carried was $5.2 billion, a rise of 69.6 percent year-on-year, according to the latest figures from the Alataw Pass Customs.

Every day, border security and customs officials deal with large numbers of trains and trucks lined up at checkpoints to be insp上海乌托邦上海品茶

ected, heading to or coming from countries in Europe and Central Asia. Meanwhile, crude oil is constantly pumped to China from Kazakhstan via a network of subterranean pipelines.

Since it opened in 1991, the Alataw Pass land port has been famous for strong winds almost all-year-round and for being a strategic

entry point for energy products. Now, it’s famous for the China Railway Express, and as a trade hub for a range of goods, such as imported cars, agri

cultural products and alcohol,” said Di Yongjiang, Party chief of Alashankou, a city established in 2012 based around the land port.

Wang Chuanjie, head of the Alataw Pass Customs, said: “Since May 2017, the China Railway Express has become a stable and regular service. To provide a bette

r service, we have teamed up with the border security authorities to conduct joint inspections, cutting inspection

times by 30 minutes. The customs clearance time has also been accelerated to ensure the efficiency of the tra

in service. Now, trains only need to stop at the port for six to 10 hours, from 12 hours before.”

By using the quadrat, I gain a deeper understanding of the

e grasslands. Having visited nearly every region of gr爱上海同城对对碰assland in China, I realize my passion for them is in my blood,” says Xin, 49.

A researcher and doctoral supervisor at the Institute of Agricultural Resources and Regional Planning at the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Xin is also爱上海同城对对碰

the head of the national field station at the Inner Mongolia Grassland Ecosystem Research Station in Hulunbuir.

爱上海同城对对碰From 1988 to 1992, she studied ecology at Lanzhou University. In her sophomore year she condu

cted field research in a forest. A year later, she got the chance to embark on a study of the grasslands.

“Wandering around the forest is fun, but when I lie down on the grasslands under the blue sky, it feels like home,” Xin says.爱上海同城对对碰

She recalls a day when she was standing on the grasslands after the rain had stopped,

爱上海同城对对碰she caught sight of the mountains in the distance layered with different colors-the green grasslands below, then the purple-brown rho

dodendron bushes, the red bald mou上海品茶ntain, followed by its white snow-capped peak topped off with a white cloud hat.

“This image is so etched in my mind that it always reminds me of why I love the grasslands,” says Xin.

She was given the 2018 Technology Innovation Award by China Central Television and爱上海同城对对碰上海品茶

Chinese Academy of Sciences in January for her research on grassland ecology. And now, after sp

ending three decades studying them, Xin’s colleagues refer to her as “the daughter of the grasslands”.

爱上海同城对对碰上海品茶She says her main interest is the grasslands and through science she can actually do something for such ecos

ystems. She recalls how at the age of 11 her father first took her to the grasslands in the Gannan Tibetan auto

Liquor firm Kweichow Moutai’s shares break through

Kweichow Moutai Co Ltd, China’s iconic high-end spirit maker, saw its share price exceed 1,000上海会所

上海会所yuan ($145) per share during Thursday trading, making a historical breakthrough and becoming the

most expensive stock in the A-share market, aided by continuously growing demand and its good earnings.上海会所

上海会所Most investors are not surprised by the robust performance of Moutai. Earlier this year, many investment firms, incl

上海会所uding Goldman Sachs and China International Capital Corp Ltd, were bullish on the growth potential of the stock.

They set the target price of Moutai at more than 1,000 yuan per share, attri

buting it to China’s sustained supply-side reforms and consumption upgrade, which have boosted investor sentiment toward such consumer stocks.

上海会所Moutai, a distiller from Maotai town in southwestern China’s Guizhou province, has made substantial gains this year. On Jan 1, it

closed at 598.98 yuan per share. On Thursday, it closed at 996.35 yuan per share, and its share price has surged 66 per上海会所

cent so far this year. Its performance has been better than 90 percent of the A-share listed companies.上海会所品茶微信

Now, its market value stands at 1.24 trillion yuan. Previously, it became the first consumer st

ock with a market value exceeding 1 trillion yuan. Last year, the overall GDP of Guizhou province reached 1.4上海会所

上海会所品茶微信8 trillion yuan, meaning the market value of Moutai accounts for nearly 85 percent of provincial GDP.

Moutai became the first stock that exceeded 1,000 yuan per share after 27 years. More than tw

o decades ago, there was a stock-now named INESA Holding Group-which once exceeded 1,000 yuan pe

r share. The company has experienced multiple structural 上海会所品茶微信changes and now its market value is less than 10 billion yuan.

Other major上海会所 liquor makers are reporting solid sales and also saw outsta

nding performance during Thursday trading. They include Sichuan province-based W

uliangye Yibin Co Ltd and LuzhouLaojiao Group, which led the advance of the spirits and consumer sector.

rsive Experience, an 上海乌托邦品茶微信now on at the Nati

There is another 上海乌托邦品茶微信 section in the exhibition where people can paint or draw and

then have their works scanned and the digital versions shown on a screen. In another sect

ion of the exhibition, people can put on virtual reality headsets to “visit” the places where Van Gogh worked.

Beijing is the first Chinese city where the exhibition is being held, Iacampo says, but the company hopes to take the show to Sh

anghai, Chengdu and Guangzhou, and details are to be confirmed with local exhibition providers.

The Large Dragon postage stamps, issued by the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) govern

ment in 1878, marked the beginning of the modern postal service in China, hence the treasured status and hig

h value of such stamps among philatelists-collectors who specialize in postage stamps.

According to Sun Jiangtao, artist and vice-president of the All-China Philatelic Federa

tion, less than 20 complete sets of Large Dragon stamps now exist around the world.
