It has begun (eSevero2015).
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The Ancient Silk Road is a trade route over land and sea between china and Iran.
The first train connecting Iran and China was loaded with Chinese goods and arrived in Tehran on Monday.Iranian railway company admitted it is better than the alternative 30-day sea voyage.
Mohsen Pourseyed Aqayi, the head of the Iranian railway company, said: "The arrival of this train in less than 14 days is unprecedented. The revival of the Silk Road is crucial for the countries on its route."
Plans to extend the railway to Europe in the future would generate more income for Iran, which currently depends on China for over a third of its foreign trade.
The ancient Silk road has been revived.
One of the rail company spokespeople announced the leaders of both China and Iran agreed to a 10-year, $600 billion trade partnership last month.
The Silk Road was named after the Chinese silk trade, which generated quite a bit of business, and both China and Iran hope to see it spur the economy once again.
The new national vision, titled "One Belt, One road," is meant to connect Europe, Asia and Africa.
