In late July 2022, after their talks in Cholpon-Ata in Kyrgyzstan, Minister of Foreign Affairs of China WANG Yi and Foreign Affairs Minister of Kyrgyzstan Jeenbek Kulubaev announced that the first group of Chinese railway experts had begun their survey work in Kyrgyzstan, a step marking the beginning of the construction process of the China–Kyrgyzstan–Uzbekistan railway.

This announcement comes only a few months after the 1,000 km-long China–Laos Railway began its operations.  The China–Laos Railway gives landlocked Laos the unprecedented opportunity to become a hub for economic activity.  Will the China–Kyrgyzstan–Uzbekistan railway offer Kyrgyzstan and its neighboring countries similar opportunities?


这一消息是在全长 1000 公里的中老铁路开通几个月后发布的。中老铁路为老挝这一内陆国家成为经济活动中心提供了前所未有的机会。中吉乌铁路会给吉尔吉斯斯坦及其周边国家带来类似的机会吗?
