The one-month event allows citizens of Xi'an to experience the convenience and benefits brought about by Chang'an China-Europe freight trains by giving them a chance to buy the goods which the trains transport.

Products include daily necessities, kitchen utensils, chemical products, household items, health products, drinks, food, maternal and child supplies, and fresh produce, among other things, from more than 40 countries and regions including Europe, Japan, South Korea, Central Asia and Southeast Asia.

In addition, the Wanguo Fengqing Food Festival, held on the inner street of the red wine base, offers a combination of national specialties from countries along the Belt and Road, along with traditional Chinese cuisine. Delicacies include Turkish barbecue, steak, seafood, sashimi, pasta, bread, German sausages, paella, and onion cakes.

Two Volvo cars imported by Chang'an China-Europe freight trains were also available for visitors to test drive.

The first Chang'an Container Shopping Festival showcased the development of the e-commerce industry in Xi'an Port and gave visitors a better understanding of the virtues of cross-border e-commerce.

"I hope that Xi'an Port will continue to operate the Chang'an China-Europe freight trains to bring more low-cost international products into Xi'an and improve the quality of life among local residents," said Mr. Fan, who attended the festival to test drive the cars.

Since the beginning of this year, Chang'an China-Europe freight trains have designated trains for the import of meat and mung beans, cross-border e-commerce and finished vehicles. Consumer goods such as Russian plates, Uzbekistan mung beans, Kazakhstan wheat, Central Asian honey and cotton yarn, Georgian red wine and Volvo cars are being imported on a regular basis.

In the future, ITL Park will continue to promote the development and operation of Chang'an China-Europe freight trains and bring in more authentic, low-priced goods from around the world.
