China's high-speed rail on fast track in technology innovation and application

Updated 2016-12-29 14:01:37 Xinhua

With leading technology innovation and application, high-speed rail has become a symbol of Made-in-China and going-global products, said a white paper released by the State Council Information Office on Thursday.

"China's technologies for high-speed, alpine, plateau and heavy-haul railways have reached the world's advanced level," said the document titled "Development of China's Transport".

Railway and highway construction technologies have overcome world-level geological challenges such as plateau permafrost, and expansive soil and sand. The construction of the Qinghai-Tibet Highway and Qinghai-Tibet Railway has been completed and they have been opened to traffic, said the white paper.

"High-performance railway equipment technologies with proprietary intellectual property rights, represented by high-speed railways and high-power locomotives, have reached the advanced world level, with some of them leading the world," it said.

Information and communications technologies, such as big data, cloud computing, Internet of Things and mobile Internet, have been widely applied in transport, and combined online and traditional business models are thriving, said the white paper.

In addition, the white paper said China is quickening the pace of Chinese enterprises' "going global" with China exhibiting a strong competitive edge in the areas of railway building, transport projects and port operation.

Besides high-speed rail, China's key construction technologies for offshore deepwater ports, improved technologies for large estuary waterways and long waterways, and construction technologies for large-scale airports are leading the world, said the white paper.
