China Russia Bridge

China Russia Bridge

First Highway over Amur River

On June 10, a new 1,080 meter-long cross-border road bridge between Russia and China was opened, bolstering trade ties and introducing a new page in Russia-China relations.
The bridge dubbed the first highway over the Amur River (known as the Heilongjiang in China) by state media on both sides linked the east Russian city of Blagoveshchensk with the Chinese city of Heihe.

Grand Opening Ceremony:

The inauguration ceremony was extravagant, with rockets trailing multicolored smoke bursting overhead and local officials clapping from the riverbanks.
Eight freight trucks from both countries traveled in sequence across the kilometer-long bridge on the first highway journey. Each truck carried two large national flags on either side of their vehicle as they crossed one another.

Russia China Trade

The Chinese freighters carried electronics and tires, while the
Russian freighters transported soybean oil and sawn timber.
The project will likely enhance bilateral trade between the two countries as Moscow turns to Beijing for economic assistance.

Once fully operational, Moscow anticipates clearing four million tonnes of cargo and two million passengers yearly.
The relations between these two countries have expanded under Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping, with Moscow announcing this spring that it wants to increase commerce to $200 billion by 2024, up from a recordbreaking $146 billion last year.
