China is moving far ahead of the United-States in the development of its infrastructure. Wishing that Americans will take notice and start improving their own society.

This is what America needed, infrastructure spending, instead of a tax break for billionaires (who really don't need more) and big corporations (who mainly used it to buy back their own stock).

China should change its motto to 'Just Do It'. The US already has the motto 'Just Delay It'.
中国应该把口号改为“只管去做”（'Just Do It）。美国的口号已经改为“只管去拖”了。

This will also likely be finished in a few years, not the decades it takes some places in the USA to complete a few small train stations... The USA is clearly losing on the infrastructure front. Riding the subway in NYC, it is clear the system has been downgraded to a 2nd world mass transit system, not a 1st world.

At end of 2018, China has completed 18125miles or 29000km high speed rails. More than rest of the world combined. Great achievement!

Hmmm....China invests $33 billion in improving infrastructure; they already know where to spend their funds because it’s been proven walls are a waste or money.

Just hope this will be a sustainable project, there are already a lot of completed mega projects that lose money for years and doesnt seem to be profitable.

China is going to build hi-speed rails, not like the rails in us now.The length of China's railways in operation reached 127,000 kilometers, of which 25,000 kilometers were high-speed railways, accounting for 66.3 percent of the world's total. the average speed is 300 kilometers.and all those hi-speed rails were built in a matter of several year.

China is spending $38 billion on super railway; while Trump and his associated f-s, want to spend $50 billion on a useless wall. Wonder why Chinas economy is #1 in the world.

Infrastructure. What a unique idea. We gonna spend $22 billion on a wall. China already has one and it works great. No Mongols have not invaded China in over 1000 years. Still working. We (USA) are so screwed.

While I agree that US should spend more for infrastructures but high speed railways are not necessarily needed for US. China on the other hand definitely needs it since there never was adequate means of transportation (and movement of commercial goods) and not too many people in China can afford air fares.

Tony6 hours ago
It is funny the US is debating about $5 billion for the wall to secure the border. If the US has the money to bomb here and there in the world, why not spend this money for their border. This world needs construction instead of destruction. The US should withdraw all its troops from abroad and spend money home and the world would be a better place with less wars and more peace.

Actually US has more money than China. But allocated the most budget to its military. If US can reduce 30% of its military budget and allocate to infrastructure, then plenty of things will happen in US.
