Changsha to Be Logistic Center in Central China
In 2018, nearly 200 new enterprises registered in the Changsha Huanghua Comprehensive Bonded Zone, Hunan's first comprehensive airport bonded zone. The zone achieved an import and export volume of about 2.7 billion USD, ranking first among the seven special customs supervision zone in Hunan and 17th among 96 comprehensive bonded zones in China.
This was announced at the 2018 Annual Meeting and Internal Training of the Changsha Huanghua Comprehensive Bonded Zone on February 20.
With the extension of the “Silk Road in the air” to fishing, the zone currently has more than 10 seafood trading companies. It enables the purchase of 40-plus kinds of seafood products from more than 20 countries and regions around the world. Weekly seafood imports exceed 500 tons. The “World Seafood Industrial Park” is taking shape. In the near future, Changsha is expected to become a global distribution center for high-end seafood.
The zone opened all-cargo flights to Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam, and Dhaka in Bangladesh. Counting the regular all-cargo flight linking Changsha to North America opened last year, the three routes had total import and export volume of 120 million USD in 2018.
The zone will open international all-cargo routes from Changsha to Europe and America. It will promote the building of a transport system of railway, highway, water, and air, so as to create a logistic center in central China.
"This year we will strive to achieve an import and export volume of 5 billion USD," said Meng Lixiang, member of the CPC Working Committee and deputy director of the Management Committee of the Changsha Huanghua Comprehensive Bonded Zone.
