The sustainable transportation development report (2022) has also been released in Chinese and English during the event, introducing the latest development of the country's practice in promoting sustainable transportation.

China also signed a number of documents with international organizations and countries, such as the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), Serbia, Mongolia, Saudi Arabia and Singapore. Those documents are to strengthen exchanges and cooperation, as well as enhance science and technology innovation cooperation.

Meanwhile, the 15th International Exhibition on Transport Technology & Equipment is being held from Monday to Wednesday, showcasing the latest advancements in transportation technology.

On Tuesday, many visitors stopped at the booth of China Communications Construction, a large State-owned multinational engineering and construction company. The models of ultra-large infrastructures built by the company were gathered on a sand table, including Lekki Deep Sea Port in Nigeria, Shanghai Yangshan Deep Water Port, Shenzhen-Zhongshan Bridge, Beijing Daxing International Airport and Tiankun, a self-propelled cutter suction dredger.

Advanced cranes which can lift two containers at the same time have been used at the Shanghai Yangshan Deep Water Port, doubled the operation efficiency to handle containers at the port, a staff explained.

"The company has carried out projects in 157 countries and regions, including the Mombasa–Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway (a standard-gauge railway in Kenya) and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge," said Wang Tongzhou, president of the company.

The company has hired many local staff to join overseas projects, building infrastructures and also nurturing local talents, said Tang Qiaoliang, head of the company's overseas business.

CCCC has invested and built more than 3,000 high-quality infrastructure projects in the countries and regions involved in the Belt and Road Initiative, he added.
