China Plan to Build A High-speed Railway Connecting Western and Eastern Europe
Information from the meeting held in Belgrade on December 16th, China is planning to build a super-long high-speed railway line connecting Balkan and China to better use the ports and railway lines in Middle and Eastern Europe. The project is scheduled to be finished by the end of 2017.

In fact, China also plans to build high-speed railways in other parts of the world. In South Asia, the railway line connecting China and Thailand has been approved by Thai government and will start to be built in 2015; in future, this line will pass through Malaysia and run into Singapore. In Europe, the Romanian government has approved China to build a railway track in their country; China, Hungary and Serbia will cooperate to build a railway between Hungary and Serbia. In Africa, China and Nigeria have signed a contract to build the railway connecting Lagos and Calabar. In South America, China is trying its best to get the high-speed railway contract from Mexico; a railway from Peru to Brazil and connecting the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic is under plan. The railway line to North America via Russia is also under preparation. Hope that China's advanced high-speed railway technology will make great contributions to the whole world.
