Vietnam to build railways

Vietnam is planning to invest $527.5 million in building railway links to Cambodia

and Laos as part of a wider plan to construct Trans-Asia railway networks to connect

ASEAN member countries. A 130-kilometer Saigon-Loc Ninh line, designed to eventually

connect to Cambodia, will be constructed by the Vietnam Railway Department, the China

Mechanical Equipment Import Export Corporation and the China Railway Construction

Corporation, local media reported. The railways are expected to promote trade and

transport cooperation between the three countries as well as China.
