NANJING, March 17 (Xinhua) -- A special direct air route for e-commerce cargo has recently been launched to connect east China's Jiangsu Province with the Philippines.
The first flight carried some 50,000 goods worth a total of 5 million yuan (about 769,000 U.S. dollars) from the Chinese city of Changzhou to Manila on Monday.
More than 200 flights via the route are planned for this year to realize exports with a total value of 650 million yuan, according to Changzhou's cross-border e-commerce supervision authorities.
As one of the country's major exporters, Jiangsu saw a record 4.45 trillion yuan of foreign trade in goods last year, ranking second nationwide. Enditem
