|China May Work with Malaysia and Singapore on High Speed Rail link which would be part of a South East Asia wide high speed rail system. China President Xi Jinping said the project, together with port development and other connectivity projects, were on top of their overseas investment ventures. Earlier this year, Malaysia and Singapore announced plans for the rail link, which is expected to cut land travelling time between the two countries to just 90 minutes. Just five years after China's high-speed rail system opened, it is carrying nearly twice as many passengers each month as the country's domestic airline industry. With traffic growing 28 percent a year for the last several years, China's high-speed rail network will handle more passengers by early next year than the 54 million people a month who board domestic flights in the United States.|
