||China : China's largest railway expansion for 10 years
||A super fast train left the Sanjiang county in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on Sunday to reach Guangzhou, 400 kilometers away.
May 15, 2016 witnessed China's largest railway expansion for 10 years with nearly new 300 pairs of trains.
A majority of the new trains connect small cities in central and west China with metropolises and hopes are high that better connectivity means enhanced prosperity.
Party chief of Pingyan village in Sanjiang Wu Yunsong, is expecting to see tourists from Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao.
As a matter of fact, the county has benefitted since 2014 from a high-speed train service between Guiyang, capital of Guizhou Province, and Guangzhou via Sanjiang.
Wu said,"The train brings more than 2,000 visitors to Sanjiang each day . About 60 percent of villagers are profiting from tourism, at least 100 yuan (about 15.3 U.S. dollars) a day."
