The imports and exports by way of the China-Laos Railway reached a quarterly record high of 1.38 million tonnes in the first quarter of 2024, a year-on-year increase of 33.6 percent, according to Kunming Customs in southwest China's Yunnan Province.

The Mohan railway port, located on China's border with Laos, has become the country's fastest-growing rail port in terms of cargo volume. It is also China's largest railway port facing ASEAN.

The China-Laos Railway, a landmark project of high-quality Belt and Road cooperation, began operations in December 2021. The 1,035-kilometer railway connects Kunming in China with Vientiane in Laos.
