KTZ noted that over the 30 years of the country’s independence about two and a half thousand kilometers of new railways have been built to ensure communications between regions, increase export and transit potential.

For eight months of 2021 14.4 million tons of cargo were transported through the Dostyk-Alashankou and Altinkol-Khorgos railway borderlines between China and Kazakhstan. This figure is 2% more than during the same period of 2020.
