On the morning of March 21st, the diplomatic envoys visited the Inland International Logistics Hub and the Chongqing Railway Container Center Station, where they were able to witness the results of the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle and the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor. During the visit, the delegation learned about Chongqing's efforts to develop as a national logistics hub city, complete with port, land, and air transportation facilities, as well as the city's drive to promote the interconnection and integration of various transportation channels and economic development.

"The China-Europe Railway Express serves as an important link between China and Europe, facilitating cheaper, faster, and safer transportation, which in turn promotes bilateral economic and trade exchanges and benefits countries along the route. While our railway system may not yet be connected to the China-Europe Railway Express, we can still transport goods to Budapest, Hungary, or some cities in Germany and Italy through joint transportation," said Selim Belortaja, the Ambassador of Albania to China and head of the delegation.

Ambassador Belortaja also acknowledged that Chongqing is one of China's most significant industrial cities, with significant advantages in the automobile, motorcycle, and electronic information industries. He expressed his hope for cooperation in these areas.

"Slovenia and China have established trade cooperation, primarily through sea transportation. However, we may further explore the possibility of utilizing the China-Europe Railway Express for faster transport," said Alenka Suhadolnik, the Ambassador of Slovenia to China.

She added that Chongqing's strategic location and robust transportation infrastructure make it one of China's most important transportation hubs. Moreover, Chongqing boasts stunning natural scenery, a rich cultural history, and robust industrial production. "I am also impressed by the city's air quality. Despite (rapid) industrialization, nature is not being compromised."

In addition to visiting the railway and logistics facilities, the diplomats also visited the Chongqing Planning Exhibition Gallery to learn about the city's development plans and urban ecological construction.
