CHENGDU, Aug. 7 (2020) -- Chengdu has seen nearly 1,200 accumulative trips made by China-Europe freight trains from January to July this year, a year-on-year increase of 58.6 percent, according to the management committee of the Chengdu International Railway Port.

The number of China-Europe freight trains rose significantly during the first half of this year, with a total of 5,122 train trips made, up 36 percent year on year, according to the China State Railway Group.

The capabilities of China's western regions to provide logistics support to the high-tech sector, as well as its supply of high-caliber talent, remain a huge magnet for foreign investors.
