High-speed train in China

High-speed train yard

High-speed rail has developed rapidly in China over the past 15 years with substantial funding from the Chinese
government, especially the economic stimulus program during the Great Recession. The removal of Railway
Minister, Liu Zhijun for corruption and a fatal railway accident near Wenzhou in 2011 raised
concerns about safety as well as affordability, financial sustainability and environmental impact. China's early
high-speed trains were imported or built under technology transfer agreements with foreign train-makers,
including Alstom, Siemens, Bombardier and Kawasaki Heavy Industrie. Following the initial technological transfer
is over, Chinese engineers have re-designed internal train components and built indigenous trains manufactured
by the state-owned CRRC Corporation
, the world largest railroad-car company.
The HSR building boom continues with the HSR network set to reach 38,000 km in 2025.
