Li Bai, the famous Chinese poet in Tang Dynasty, once wrote that "walking on the narrow paths of Sichuan is as difficult as climbing up to heaven".
It most faithfully describes the difficult and dangerous access to Sichuan for thousands of years as there are numerous mountains and dangerous shoals along the paths to Sichuan. But now, "difficult paths of Sichuan" has long become history. Chengdu, as the transportation hub of western China, is now a new node that connects China with other parts of the world. For this reason, businessmen around the world are able to gather here and easily take care of their businesses throughout the globe.

Chengdu-Europe Express Railway: the Modern Silk Road
Chengdu-Europe Express Railway has been the fastest freight train that opens for two-way operation so far between China and Europe. Starting from Chengdu to Lodz, Poland, it covers a distance of 9,826 km and extends to some European hub cities, such as Nuremberg, Germany, Tilburg, the Netherlands, etc. Now, one train departs from Chengdu everyday and three trains return every week.
In more than three years, 224 Chengdu-Europe Express Railways have been opened to operation, with more than 30,000 tons of export goods and its cumulative value of more than 800 million US dollars. In the future, Chengdu-Europe express railway will further extend to other hub cities. It will further strengthen the cooperation of Sichuan and the hub cities in Europe in logistic channels and promote bilateral economic, trade and cultural exchange. With its help, Chengdu is becoming a highlighted inland open city and national gateway city.
The implementation of "Chengdu-Europe+" strategy is a major action that will accelerate the construction of Chengdu railway post and integrate Chengdu into the international "One Belt One Road" strategy. At the same time, the freight trains from Chengdu to Xiamen, Kunming, Wuhan and other cities will effectively connect with Chengdu-Europe Express Railway, thus achieving the strategic development of "Chengdu-Europe+" strategy in the "two networks", i.e. international and domestic market.
