RZD and Chinese Railways to cooperate closer

The heads of Russian Railways (RZD) and Chinese Railways recently held a working meeting and recognized the need to prepare and sign a new contract between their two companies that will identify areas for further collaboration. The parties agreed to continue developing railway corridors from China to Europe through Russia, Kazakhstan, and Belarus, as well as through Mongolia (the Northern logistics system). In addition, the two parties expressed their willingness to step up the work required to accelerate the transition to electronic data interchange with railfreight traffic on the corridors between China and Russia. The two railway bosses also discussed issues of cooperation in the field of high-speed rail transport. Particular attention was paid to exchanging information on reforming the railway sector.
