He added that during the meeting Estonia's regional attractiveness when transporting goods from China to the Scandinavia was mostly mentioned as well as the speed, transparency, accuracy and correctness of doing business with Estonia.


Estonian logistics companies also took part in the meeting with the head of the national railway company Temir Zholy, Askar Mamin. Participants found that at present logistics cooperation between the two countries is not very active, but there are development prospects.
