“At present, no other trade hub in China is able to amass such a huge trove of data as we do with our system,” Ma said.
According to the port area authorities, during a recent trial of the system freight trains r

Between 2016 and the middle of this month, more than 2,400 trains had hauled goods acro
ss the port area, via about 20 routes of the China Express Railway, and made their way to 25 cities in 18 countries.

One of the most popular commodities heading west from Xinjiang is a tomato-based sauce, accord上海千花坊女神会所
ing to Zheng Weiguo, vice-manager of Urumqi International Land Port Multimodal Transport Co.
“Last year, about 50,000 metric tons of the tomato-based sauce were exported to Russia alone,” he said. Behi上海千花坊女神会所
nd him, heavy trucks loaded with multicolored containers were revving up to transfer goods onto an approaching freight train.
It can take as long as 50 days for the sauce to reach its farthest destination, Naples in Italy, by sea, setting off from Tianjin Port in North China.
“The express train services have cut the journey time to about 12 days, allowing Chinese agricultu
ral goods to overtake their global competitors,” said Liu Shaohua, deputy director of the port area.
“We have already received positive feedback from wholesale buyers overseas, who have praised the rail service for its speed and low rate of da
mage (to goods). In the future, we plan to further boost confidence in products made in Xinjiang, and expand avenues fo
r overseas sales through the real-time monitoring system and the sophisticated freight rail network.”
While some are skeptical about the G20’s usefulness, they said, many上海419论坛

Focusing largely on standards and regulations, both crucial to a firm’s generic value chain, the report found however that when authorities take steps to reduce compliance costs, the competitiveness of SMEs is greatly improved.
It also underlined an important shift which is seeing more and more developing countries setting voluntary sustainability standards (known as VSS, these are set by businesses and NGOs) which govern international trade together with public standards and regulations.
Findings show that while 75 percent of VSS originate in countries belonging to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation
and Development, over a third of new voluntary standards are thought up in developing countries, up from eight percent in 1990.
The outlook also outlined that many regions across the world can increase their export potential “by directing regulatory efforts to boost SME competitiveness.”
In the Middle East and North Africa region for example, researchers found there is large untapped export opportunity in the fresh and processed food sec
tor, while metal and basic manufacturing represent 28.4 percent of Eastern Europe and Central Asia’s unexploited export potential.
In China, ITC estimated that telephone sets have an unrealized export potential of more than $100 billion, while other prod
ucts including automatic data processing machines and parts and accessories for printers also have potential.
