Transportation "It is a significant event for Slovakia"
"It is a significant event for Slovakia. I think we'll not stay just in the trial operation, but we'll go further in this," said Arpad Ersek, Minister of Transport and Construction of Slovak Republic.
According to the ministry, the train is the first one ever whose route will cross almost the whole of Slovak territory.
And as of next year, trains between the Chinese city of Dalian and Bratislava's cargo port will operate once a week, and twice a week as of the second half of 2018. ■
