Some 1,400 westbound trains will depart Urumqi, capital of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, by the end of this year, according to the local government.

According to the Xinjiang Development and Reform Commission, 800 trains will head to Central Asia, 400 to Europe and 200 trains to Russia.

A Sino-European logistics big data platform is to be built within the Urumqi international land port zone, the departure point for westbound freight trains, it said.

An export-oriented economic zone is also planned to attract logistics enterprises and those from real-economy sectors, it added.

The commission has pledged to speed up efforts to establish a cross-border e-commerce cooperation demonstration platform in Kazakhstan and explore the feasibility of overseas industrial parks in Kazakhstan and Georgia.
