First shipment along new China-Myanmar corridor makes it to Chengdu
On August 27, the first batch of cargo successfully arrived at Chengdu International Railway Port in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province. This batch of goods was shipped by sea from Singapore to the Port of Yangon in Myanmar, transported by road to Lincang of southwest China's Yunnan Province, and traveled by direct railway to Chengdu.
