Work on a 1,500-kilometer high-speed rail link between the northern and southern regions will start in 2026 or 2027, Vietnam’s Minister of Transport Nguyen Van Thang says.

Work is set to begin next year, connecting China with the northern province of Lao Cai, Hanoi and the port city of Hai Phong.

Vietnam hopes to partner with China in building the railroad and rolling stock and setting up its signaling system, Nguyen told Lou Qiliang, chairman of China Railway Signal & Communication Corporation (CRSC) at a meeting in China’s Dalian City.

The three determine the safety of a rail project, and China has advanced technologies for developing them and at reasonable prices, he said.

CRSC is a state-owned company and the world’s biggest supplier of rail control systems. It also accounts for 45% of China’s subway market.
