Relying on the construction of a national logistics hub as a land border port, Hunchun has closely cooperated with Ningbo Zhoushan Port Group and Qingdao Port Group with the help of platforms like the Jilin-Zhejiang paired-up cooperation platform, made efforts to achieve the regular operation of the “external transport with domestic traded goods” freight route via Russia’s Zarubino Port as soon as possible, reduced the cost of the Makhalino-Hunchun railway transport, fully smoothed the dual circulation channel connecting the northeast with the Yangtze River Delta, the Greater Bay Area and Northeast Asia, and built a rail-sea intermodal transport hub in Northeast Asian. At the same time, Hunchun has strengthened its connectivity with neighboring countries, carried out cooperation with Russia in areas of shipping routes, clean energy, minerals, aquatic products, timber and tourism, deepened economic and trade cooperation with Japan and the ROK, and built a cooperation hub in Northeast Asia.
