A few days ago, the first batch of more than 7,000 Chinese-made Tesla vehicles exported to Europe has partially arrived at Zeebrugge Port and will be shipped to Germany, France, Italy, Spain and other European countries for sale. The continuous development of shipping trade reflects the close ties between China and Europe, and the vigorous development of cross-border e-commerce has also played a significant role.

The scale and rapid growth of China’s e-commerce market has inspired global companies. Europe and China will accelerate the opening of freight routes and freight trains, and carry out port maritime cooperation.

This province exports high-quality vegetables, pork, beer, and handmade chocolates.
