Vladimir Putin spoke of great potential of project of Moscow - Kazan HSR construction

“China is our key partner in economy. During the past few years, we have achieved significant progress in all areas of economic and production cooperation,” stated the Russian President in an interview with the TASS and Xinhua news agencies. During the interview, Vladimir Putin talked about the projects that have the greatest significance to both countries, such as construction of the Power of Siberia gas pipeline, and construction by Rosatom of the first and second power generating units of the Tianwan Nuclear Power Station. He emphasized the importance of construction of the Moscow — Kazan high-speed rail line. “One of the most promising areas, in my opinion, is development of high-speed railway service. Parameters of joint financing of the Moscow — Kazan high-speed rail line have already been agreed upon. Jointly with the Chinese partners we plan to invest in its construction more than 1 trillion rubles. We estimate that the new rail line will be operational by 2020 and will become an exemplary project for Russian-Chinese cooperation in the area of transport and infrastructure.”
