A section of the Chinese-built Hungary-Serbia railway opened on Saturday in Serbia, marking a milestone, according to the China State Railway Group, the company that manages and oversees all of the country's railway projects.

The section linking Belgrade, Serbia's capital and its largest city, with Novi Sad, its second-largest city, reduces travel time from 90 to 30 minutes, greatly improving efficiency.

Trains are now able to travel the 80 kilometer section at 200 km per hour, up from less than 50 km per hour before.

The Hungary-Serbia railway is a flagship project designed to demonstrate cooperation between China and Central and Eastern Europe, and is also a major project in the Belt and Road Initiative affiliate region. When completed, the 350-kilometer line will link Budapest, the capital of Hungary, with Belgrade.
