China-Mongolia border port sees robust growth in freight transport

Date: 18 Sep 2021

The import and export values of goods transported via the border port of Erenhot in North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region posted a yearly increase of 38.2 percent to reach 22.04 billion yuan ($3.42 billion) in the first eight months of this year, local customs said Sep 18.

The import volume registered 15.34 billion yuan during the period, increasing by 41.9 percent year-on-year, while that of the exports totaled 6.7 billion yuan, up 30.4 percent year-on-year, said the customs of Erenhot.

The rapid import growth shows China's steady economic recovery since the beginning of this year. Meanwhile, the rising trend of the global market price for bulk commodities is another factor driving the growth.

In terms of exports, the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on Mongolia's domestic production capacity, making it more dependent on imports from China. In the first eight months of this year, China's exports in mechanical and electrical products to Mongolia increased by 57.5 percent as a result of Mongolia's increasing demand for mine equipment.

Erenhot Port, the only railway port between China and Mongolia and a substantial channel for international cargo, has around 50 China-Europe freight train routes passing through it.
