China is looking forward to launch bullet train services from Kunming to Kolkata, Chinese consul general in Kolkata, Ma Zhanwu, said on Wednesday.
“We are looking forward to bullet trains from Kolkata to Kunming. The whole Asia will be connected,” said Zhanwu while addressing a conference on connectivity and trade relations between China and India.
“It will only take a few hours to reach Kolkata from Kunming if the rail link becomes a reality,” he asserted.
However the Chinese General did not give that much information about the route the bullet train will be taking. Zhanwu also said that India is a growing economy and China wants to maintain a balance relationship between China and India. He added that despite the fall in value of rupee lately, the rise of Indian economy is irreversible.
