Container train EU-China to start running through Ukraine this year

07.12.2017

The container train, connecting the European Union and China should start running through the territory of Ukraine already this year. "We received a cargo from the EU. I hope that next year the frequency will reach at least one train per week", - said the Minister of Infrastructure Volodymyr Omelyan.

In parallel, the work on creation of a new route for Silk Road - Ukraine-Georgia-Azerbaijan-Kazakhstan is going on, as well as the route from the EU to China through Ukraine, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Commenting on the current state of the project for the launch of Ukraine-Georgia ferry communication, Omelyan expressed an opinion that the Memorandum between PJSC "Ukrainian Railways", JSC "Georgian Railways" and CJSC "Azerbaijan Railways" signed in September 2017 is not enough. "We need a private investor, preferably Chinese one. This is a guarantee that cargoes will arrive", - the Minister said.
