BEIJING-- China Railway Group Limited (China Railway) announced Saturday that it has signed a side agreement with Myanmar to jointly build a rail transport construction project in Myanmar.
The side agreement was a supplement to a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed in April between the Myanmar Union Ministry of Rail Transportation and the China Railways Engineering Corporation, the parent company of China Railway.
China Railway said it would be in charge of building the rail line, which starts from the Chinese city of Ruili in southwestern Yunnan Province, extending to Muse and ending at Kyaukphyu. The entire rail line runs 810 kilometers.
The company said the project, expected to be completed within three years according to the MOU, would help deepen China-Myanmar economic ties and boost the economic growth of Myanmar.
Li Changjin, China Railway president, signed the side agreement on behalf of the company in Beijing.
