China's Baorong company is opening a platform in the Dongning County for direct exports of fruit and vegetables to Russia, the Heilongjiang Province's Applied Economic Association Chairman Zhang Chunjiao told Interfax.

"A China-Russia trans-boundary electronic commerce project will be launched in the Dongning County - a customs control zone of the company Baorong. This means the Dongning checkpoint will start up a direct corridor for exports of the company's fruit and vegetables to Russia," Zhang said.

The Baorong zone will become a logistics hub for exports of fruit and vegetables to the Russian Far East where cargo will amassed and distributed and prices will be formed. In fact, this is a wholesale market of 70,000 square meters incorporating a 30,000-square-meter warehouse, a refrigeration storage site and other structures, the Chinese economist said.

Customs clearance will be more rapid on this platform as there will be no need to double-check the cargo at a supervisory warehouse - every corner of the market will be controlled by video cameras round the clock.

More than 60 million yuan have been invested in the project.

Corporation Dili will launch a similar platform in late 2014 for the delivery of agricultural products to Russia, Zhang added.
