外文标题：Mexico cancels Chinese bullet train deal
Mexico City (AFP) - Mexico abruptly withdrew a multi-billion-dollar deal Thursday with a Chinese-led consortium to build the country's first bullet train after concerns were raised about the bidding process.
The government had awarded the $3.75 billion contract to the China Railway Construction Corp. and four Mexican partners on Monday after the group had been the only one to submit a bid.
But President Enrique Pena Nieto scrapped the deal to avoid "any doubts about the legitimacy and transparency" of the bidding process, said Transport Minister Gerardo Ruiz Esparza.
Ruiz Esparza told the Televisa network that Pena Nieto had taken the decision "moments ago" and that the bidding would start over.
为了避免对投标过程的透明度和合法性存在的质疑，墨西哥总统Enrique Pena Nieto撤销了这项协议。
墨西哥交通部长Ruiz Esparza告诉Televisa network称，墨西哥总统Enrique Pena Nieto刚才做出了这一决定，投标程序将重启。

The High Speed Train in China is awesome. Recommended for the entire planet. It seems a lot better than most modes of transport for now.
Most likely the Chinese company is paying kickbacks... we are talking about China here where government officials would be offended if they weren't offered kickbacks.

As if Mexican officials don't require kickbacks
Seems to me the Chinese would eagerly pay for the opportunity to gain such a foothold in America, Latin though it be.
China already has a foothold in America.
I wonder why this Chinese group submitted the only bid.
