"This is opportunity for Rail Baltica. (...) Our relation with China is indeed changing because we see these investments as opportunity, but we still discuss with China their market economy, because we had some problems with solar panels and dumping of steel," Wim van de Camp, the head of the TRAN delegation, said at a news conference.
MEP Isabella De Monte said that Chinese freight posed a risk and should be regarded with caution.
Michael Cramer, another member of the delegation, said that if China ships goods via Rail Baltica, it must compete fairly.
"If there is a competition, it must be a fair competition. We saw with solar panels, with steel, it is not a fair competition," he said.

Lithuania offers a quality transport and logistic chain, including both railways and the Klaipeda seaport, to China, he said.
