A new direct air freight service from China to the Mid West of the USA has been inaugerated. On 23rd September the first cargo flight to St Louis in Missouri arrived from Shanghai in China.
The Chinese Consul General to Chicago and the Mayor of St Louis met the flight. Trade between the two countries is worth nearly $400 billion, and the Consul General said that more cargo flights were needed. He hoped that the city of St Louis would make it easier for investors from China to come to the Midwest and create job opportunities.
