According to the official approval of Shandong Provincial People's Government, First Linyi Import Expo will be held in Linyi City on October 18 to 20. The expo is jointly organized by Department of Commerce of Shandong Province, Shandong Provincial Council for Promotion of International Trade and Linyi Municipal People’s Government.
Given the economic and social development of Linyi City, the existing Linyi Railway Station couldn’t supply all the residents and visitors any more. To provide a improved modern facility for both the people’s living and the social life, Linyi launched a reconstruction project on the railway station. With planned area of 14,980 square meters admitting 3000 persons, the new station is designed to locate at 150 meters away to the west from the old one.
