Storyline


A return freight train bound for Changsha City, central China's Hunan Province, rolled out on Monday from Budapest, the capital of Hungary.

The train carries 41 containers of red wine, beer, cereals, milk powder and hardware accessories made in Hungary and its neighboring countries.

A launching ceremony of the new service was attended by Laszlo Mosoczi, deputy state secretary of the Hungarian Ministry of National Development, Hunan Province Vice Governor He Baoxiang, and Xu Xiangping, head of the department of commerce for the Hunan Province.

Mosoczi said Hungarian export to China reached a record 2.25 billion U.S. dollars last year, with food products up by 1.5 times from 2015. The data of the first eight months showed that further increase -- double digits in several areas -- is expected, he added.

He Baoxiang said trade between Hunan Province and Europe has developed fast since the Xiang Ou Express, the train service linking the province with Europe, opened.

"We built a bridge and a bond between Europe and central Asia. Since the Xiang Ou Express opened, trade between Hunan Province and Central and Eastern Europe has rapidly developed. From January to October this year, our total export-import volume increased by over 60 percent, with the imports from Central and Eastern Europe increasing several times over in particular," said He.

Running a total distance of 10,118 kilometers, the train will pass through Poland, Belarus and Russia before entering China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and reaching its destination in around 15 days.
