As an important platform for developing export-oriented economy in Shaanxi and Xi’an, Xi’an International Trade & Logistics Park (XITLP) has become a pioneer for the building of “the silk road economic belt”. The information office of the provincial government’s twentieth press briefing, themed as “implementing the spirit of the thirteenth provincial Party congress, welcoming the opening of the nineteenth Party congress, carrying out the ‘five-new’ strategic tasks, and writing new chapters in Shaanxi’s catching-up and excel”, was held, and the vision of connecting the inland areas with the outside world is to be realized.

I. The multiple functional model of “passages plus ports” has been formed.

The locational disadvantage of having no borderline, coastline nor major river in Xi’an as well as Shaanxi is being changed by XITLP.

Su Yimin, director of the administrative committee of XITLP introduced that with the combination of transportations by road,railway, sea and air,XITLP has connected Xi’an, Shaanxi with every part of China as well as cities in Europe. The difficulties in unban distribution within 500 kilometers are also to be overcome. At the same time, the ports for importing grains, meats and finished automobiles have passed national acceptance check and put into use. The multiple functional model of “passages plus ports” has been formed in XITLP, which has become a key area for Xi’an, Shaanxi to develop export-oriented economy.

II. Chang’an express train has run 460 times in total

“It used to take 45 to 50 days to transport goods from Shaanxi to Europe before we have ‘Chang’an express train, but now we need only 15 to 18 days.” Sun Yimin said, “Ever since its first running on Nov. 28, 2013, ‘Chang’an’ has run 460 times to Central Asia and Europe, and it is now still in good condition.” Meanwhile, construction of supporting infrastructure is being accelerated and besides a railway container center that has already been put in use, a new railway logistics center is to be finished before the May Day next year.
