At present, many countries, including China, Japan, South Korea, France and Germany, are interested in bidding for the Singapore Malaysia high speed railway

the competition between Chinese and Japanese enterprises is the most intense in the Singapore Malaysia high speed railway. Japan defines this project as the top priority infrastructure export project. Its consortium mainly includes JR East Japan, Sumitomo, Hitachi and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. The project is of great significance to China, and it is the most important concept of the Pan Asian Railway advocated by China. The railway can make Kunming, Yunnan Province, China, an entrance to Southeast Asia, extend to Malaysia and Singapore through Laos and Thailand, and realize the interconnection between the whole Southeast Asia and China

according to a person from China Railway Corporation (hereinafter referred to as China Railway), the Singapore Malaysia high-speed railway project is led by China Railway Corporation, which combines eight enterprises, including but not limited to China Railway (), China Railway Construction (), China Communications (), CRRC (), China Communications (), CIC and the Export Import Bank of China. The enterprises in the consortium cover the design, construction, vehicles, communication, operation and other links of the whole high-speed railway industry chain. Together with financing institutions, they are the strongest lineup for China's high-speed railway to go global

according to the China business daily, China Railway Group Corporation, in its bidding plan, focused on showing the advantages of China's high-speed rail to Singapore and Malaysia in three aspects: first, key technologies and innovation; Second, China's high-speed rail is highly compatible and an open system, which can be technologically compatible and interconnected with the world's major high-speed rail technologies, and can save a lot of money for the operation and maintenance of Singapore and Malaysia in the future; Third, China has rich experience in the application of high-speed rail. China has rich experience and comparative advantages in the economic drive, operation and safety management along the high-speed rail, which is crucial for the future operation of high-speed rail in Singapore and Malaysia.
