It looks like it's easier to connect Liège to China with a freigter train than to connect Liège to Paris with a freigter TGV !

Cargo trains from China to Europe (and vice versa, of course) are all the vogue; there have been inaugurations to Antwerp and to Gent, too, not so long ago.

But what's this about a cargo HST? Liege-Paris is not a sufficient distance to make this attractive, imho; but a high speed reefer train from Spain (Valencia, or so?) to Paris and perhaps even beyond could be a strong offer, especially for fruits and vegetables.

Excuse me if this is going too far off topic.

That's a good idea in fact they could even use the track's at night when there are free.

How often is that happening ?
Fr24 thinks its BRU-HKG
Looks like a recent change, all sites mention BRU, even brussels airport website

This was a flight for Alibaba, which confirmed that Liège is the European hub.

Only its now confirmed. But not yet signed.
But the news is bigger for Liege the city as it creates a lot of jobs than for Lgg which will receive "only" 10 flights more per week.

Another passenger airline at Liège in 2019: Montenegro Airlines plans to offer charter service to La Rochelle, Rennes, Deauville, Nantes, Brive-la-Gaillarde, as well as Liege in summer 2019. Furthermore, the carrier to extend seasonal service from Podgorica to Lyon, and may offer new service to Perugia.

Why cargo airport Liege and not passenger airport Charleroi? (Brussels is probably too expensive)
