Li Tongxu, Director of Vientiane South Station with more than 20 years' experience on the railway and over 10 years as a station director in China, came to Laos in July this year. He told Xinhua that the station has been fully prepared to welcome the first train from China.

The station currently has 68 staff, including nine Chinese technical and management personnel who have rich work experiences. The rest of the Lao staff, with higher education and high enthusiasm for learning after training in the China-Laos Railway Co., Ltd., have also been competent for their respective positions.

"The first train we sent back to China yesterday carried potash produced in Laos," Li said, noting that China's Yunnan province has abundant phosphorus minerals.

"Today we are receiving 50 six-meter railway containers of dicalcium phosphate here, which reflecting the complementary relationship of the two markets," added Li.
