    China’s Hunan recently flagged off its first international freight train to Laos on the new China-Laos railway line from the international land port of Huaihua City, opening a new route to ASEAN countries. The railway line started operations in December 2021. The train carrying 72 containers, exited China via the port of Mohan in Yunan province.

    The train took about 4 days to reach Laos’ capital Vientiane, thus reducing the transportation time from Hunan to ASEAN countries by over two-thirds as compared to roadway, according to Chinese media reports.

    The first overseas 1,035 km railway line jointly constructed and operated by China and Laos connects Kunming in Yunnan Province with Vientiane. It also facilitates China’s exports to Myanmar, Thailand and Singapore.
