China approves US$6.7b high-speed railway project
[BEIJING] China has approved construction plans for a high-speed railway project worth 42.7 billion yuan (S$9.48 billion), the country's top economic planner said in a statement on Monday.
The high-speed railway will run through central Henan province and eastern Anhui province.
Beijing has approved billions of dollars in infrastructure projects in recent months to stem a sharp economic slowdown. The government has been particularly keen to promote projects in the less-developed western part of the country.
