The China-Laos Railway has handled 25,000 cross-border passenger trips since the launch of its passenger services on April 13, according to the Mohan entry-exit border checkpoint.
During the period, the Chinese border town of Mohan in the country's southwestern Yunnan Province logged 14,156 inbound passenger trips and 11,752 outbound trips.
"After the China-Laos Railway launched the international passenger train service, many Lao enterprises are willing to do business in China. My friends and I go to China this time to investigate the longan market," said Phoumy Sisaivong, a tourist from Laos.
The China-Laos Railway, a landmark project of high-quality Belt and Road cooperation, began operations in December 2021. The 1,035-km railway connects China's Kunming with Vientiane in Laos.
