Strengthen business environment, boost the BRI development


In December last year, the "Silk Road Shipping" was formally launched at Xiamen Port Haitian Terminal. Silk Road Shipping is one aspect of China's famous resurrection of the ancient Silk Road and is an initiative of China Ocean Shipping Group, Xiamen Port and Fujian Transport Group. It is China’s first shipping-themed Belt and Road international integrated logistics service brand and platform. The Silk Road Shipping actively promoted cooperation and exchanges with ports and shipping enterprises along the Maritime Silk Road, and built a new channel that features the linkage of domestic and foreign sea and land transportations and that is seamlessly connected with China-Europe Railway Express. This has created a new engine for Silk Road trade and cooperation exchanges which has effectively promoted the high-quality development of Xiamen and its participation in the construction of Belt and Road.



At present, Xiamen is doing its best to attract investment and promote development, while continuously optimizing its business environment by consolidating infrastructure, cultivating new economic driving forces and business formats.
