外文标题：India-China SED dialogue to focus on high speed rail tracks
BEIJING: India and China will hold the third round of their strategic economic dialogue here this week aimed at raising the speed of Indian trains and improving heavy haul operations and rail stock.
Deputy chairman of the Planning Commission Montek Singh Ahluwalia will arrive here tomorrow for the Strategic Economic Dialogue (SED) to be held here on March 18.
Five working groups covering different areas are finalising the details for the high level economic and trade dialogue between the two countries.
Besides attending SED, Ahluwalia would call on Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on March 19.
The Chinese delegation will be headed by chairman of the National Reforms Development Commission (NDRC) Xu Shaoshi.
The working groups covered areas like infrastructure, mainly the railways and operationalize the agreement for service centres to be set up in India for Chinese power equipment, environment and resources protection, water management and policy coordination, collaboration on planning and urbanization, cooperation in high technology including the IT sector.
Officials said the working group on infrastructure focussed discussions to work out collaboration in strengthening the existing tracks in India to increase speed of the trains, official sources told PTI.
They said talks would be centred on high speed tracks, not high speed trains in which China has developed expertise in recent years.
The two sides would also discuss collaboration in heavy haul of rail stock and redevelopment of the railway stations.
Present global economic situation, cooperation in international monetary and financial systems, global commodity markets, sustainable development and climate change would also figure in the discussion.

China will never help India. We should stop begging in Beijing, and continue to beg from Europeans. They already know we are ruled by corrupt servile people who have no morals. Vote AAP to start the revolution and help your children get out of the self loathing coolie mentality that dominates Indian Culture.

China offered 500 billion dollars for investment in India. They are also prepared to fund 30% per cent of all Indian infrastructure projects.. China and India can link the high speed train line from Lhasa to Delhi and continue to Kanyakumari. India , China and Russia can use the rail tracks for exporting and importing raw materails and manufactured products to each other ( Russia and China) and vica versa. too. The Chinese funding could be used for the River Linkage project which cosst about 100 billion dollars. The Netherlands engineers are prepared to begin the spade work and have already planned the whole project in detail. In 10 years time about 3 million Indian professionals would be working in China. Andhra Pradesh could use Chinese funding to build their new capital. India, China and Pakistani Intelligence services should work together to combat terrorsm in all 3 countries.

We have more technology than China. Chinese bought high speed train technology from the Germans. Its the money only Chinese are having, because of strong government control
