What spurred China’s ambitious rail project to connect 17 countries?

    This enormous undertaking is China’s foreign investment into its neighbors’ (and beyond, really) natural resources. An international railway will facilitate the exchange of resources between the countries involved. Example: Myanmar became a stop on the international rail when it agreed to let China have access to its lithium reserves. These kinds of relations will visibly turn China into the epicenter of Asian trade and encourage development in the less-developed nations, which will in turn create a wider market for China.

    The expansion of China’s high speed rail network will increase trade and also promote China’s high-speed rail technology to other countries, acting as a sort of marketing tool. Chinese industry also hopes tap into natural resources, especially oil and gas, in other countries upon the completion of the system.
