The project is one of several deals the Chinese industrial group has reached with Russian investors on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok and will provide equal opportunities for Russian and Chinese companies to participate.
The hub will be located between the city of Tongjiang in China’s Heilongjiang province and the city of Nizhneleninskoye and is designed to facilitate the transfer of goods between Russia and China.
