Rail­way in­vest­ment to keep mo­men­tum: Ma

Fiji Sun - - World News -


Premier Ma Kai said Thurs­day that China will con­tinue a “rel­a­tively large” scale of rail­way in­vest­ment in the next five years, a crit­i­cal pe­riod for rail­way ex­pan­sion. He made the re­marks at a con­fer­ence on rail­way con­struc­tion, stress­ing the sig­nif­i­cance of rail­way devel­op­ment in China from 2016 to 2020. “We should speed up the ex­pan­sion of China’s high-speed rail­way net­work, build more in­ter-city and city-sub­urb links, and work to com­plete a freight rail­way net­work,” said the vice premier. “We must ac­com­plish the tar­get of in­vest­ing more than US$123bil­lion (F$255.45n) in rail­way con­struc­tion in 2016,” Mr Ma said.
