China-Laos railway set to open in latest advance for Beig’s Belt and Road Initiative
Final touches were being put on the China-Laos railway on the eve of its December 3, 2021, opening. Laotian Presi nt Thongloun Sisoulith will be joined virtually by his Chinese count- part for the opening ceremony which will also mark the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The China-funded project, part of Beig’s Belt and Road Initiative meant to grow global trade, will eventually be expanded so the railway connects the Chinese city of Yunnan with Singapore, passing through Laos, Thailand, and Mysia.
Congrats to China-Laos. I love the design of train stations. I would love to see all all the stations.
Congratulations to the people of Laos
"From land-locked to land-linked". Laos will always be a land-locked country, unless the sea levels rise so much the coast reaches its border. Land-linked? It's been linked to all neighboring countries for decades by road. Will the new railway improve Laos' economy? I hope so, and I would certainly like to ride the train.
COVID or no COVID, this railway is essential! For the economy that's always needed, man.
Congrats Laos from Philipes

Ho This Railway Will Extend up to Manila Passing by the Countries of China, Laos, Thailand, Mysia, Singapore, Mysia Again and Into the Philipes via a Bridge Linking Mindanao and Borneo Passing the Sulu Archipelago, Then Railway will Continue towards the Capital of Manila, Once Completed, Passengers can Go to Beig from Manila Nonstop, So That Airplane Flights will be Declining Demand
You mean... China ACTUALLY is building infrastructure in these BRI countries? BRI started in mid 2010s and has already done so much for the countries that have signed up with infrastructure and trade. What has the West done so far from the hundreds of years of colonization/imperialism that has been the betterment for these countries?
congrajulate China and laos!
Chinese model of development. Hail from Nepal.
Will the line handle freight as well? The HSR doesn't normally handle freight in China.
The capacity will mostly be Chinese tourists one way if there's no freight. China wont allow most Laotian workers.
Cool... hope this caviiid finish sooon so i can visit my lovely brothers of china.
May Laos prosper
Wise way for China to spend its excess dollars instead buying US treasury bond
The railway is going to link to T province soon.
My conquering of SEA.
Even a poor country like Laos gets a piece of the pie from China
Use now.. pay later... if no pay... your country is ours...

ahh.. now the U.S can't block the supply route from the straits of mcca .. nice
Can apply visa to travel to china using this train?
Laos is a very small economy and not capable to build this how they can pay this massive project when their country has no money to pay back they need more than decades and they should stop relying from china this is gonna be a huge de t.
Enjoy your de t trap
