Guangxi to promote construction of land-sea corridor projects
Nanning would make every effort to promote the construction of key projects of the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor, such as Nanning International Railway Port and China-Singapore Nanning International Logistics Park (CSILP).
The remarks were made by Chen Zhigang, deputy director of Nanning Beibu-Gulf Economic Zone Planning Construction and Administration Office on March 17.
The total investment of Nanning International Railway Port is about 13 billion yuan ($2.04 billion), and the land area is 6,402 mu (426.8 hectares). At present, its multimodal transport hub is gradually taking shape. In the future, the construction of functional areas will be accelerated.
The CSILP project has a total investment of more than 10 billion yuan and a planned land area of about 4,273 mu. Since the project was put into operation, the accumulated freight volume has exceeded 1.3 million metric tons. CSILP is expected to be completed in 2025.
Wei Zhaohui, deputy Party chief of Chongzuo, said that Chongzuo would accelerate the construction of a number of transportation projects, such as the Nanning-Pingxiang Intercity Railway and the Bama-Pingxiang Expressway, which is expected to directly connect the city's five national first-class ports by 2025.
Wei added that Chongzuo would continue to promote the expansion and opening of ports, as well as the resumption of operation of mutual market points. It will also propose building a China-ASEAN inland trade and logistics port.
