“After 6 rounds of talks, the China – Thailand Railway Cooperation Framework will be signed early in September, ” said Zhu Xijun, the general manager of Southeast Asia Branch of China Railway Construction Corporation Limited, “construction will begin in late October, with the hope to complete within 3 years.”
China has entered the 40th year in a friendly relationship with Thailand since the establishment of the diplomatic relation. China Rail sees this train route as a present for both ends and a promising gateway to interchange in many aspects. The route will connect Kunming, provincial capital of Yunnan Province of China with Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. Being a part of the trans-Asia railway system, which is planned to connect China with Singapore, the China – Thailand Train Route will cost only 1/3 as much as the flight.
