"China's High Speed Rail will extend to Europe, Central Asia and East Asia," the professor and the member of China Engineering Academy from Beijing Jiaotong University, Mengshu Wang, told the South China Morning Post Tuesday. "17 countries in these areas will be included into our projects and the Chinese government has submitted 3 programs about the high speed railway network to these countries." Wang once participated directly in all the High Speed Rail (HSR) projects in China. He is an authority in the field of Chinese HSR.

Mr. Wang said "China has drawn up a plan on the grid rail including the Central Asia HSR, the Southeast Asia HSR and the Russian Continent HSR," "We are holding a talk with some relevant countries so as we can complete this project within 2025.”  "So far we have reached an agreement with Russia and some of the countries in regard to the plan." He also said.

According to this grand blueprint, the Central Asia HSR will make its starting point at Urumqi, the capital city of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Regions, the high-speed trains will trip through Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Turkey etc. and end their travel at German; the Southeast Asia HSR will be bound for Singapore from Kunming (capital city of Yunnan) via  Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand(or from Kunming via Myanmar to Thailand),Malaysia; The Russian Continent HSR will start from Heilongjiang province traverse northern Russia and finally reach Western Europe.

"In the negotiations," Mr. Wang said "We promise to provide technology of HSR, equipment, and the high-speed trains reach a maximum of 350km/h." "We will pay the bills on their railway construction if the countries who build HSR and transport their natural gas or lithium to China.”
China already has the world’s longest high-speed rail. Notable examples of Chinese high-speed train service now in operation include the Wuhan–Guangzhou High-Speed Railway (1068 km), the Zhengzhou - Xian High-Speed Railway (505km) and the Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Railway (120 km).
