BEIJING, June 8 (Xinhua) -- The following is a summary of published science and technology news of China.


A meter-gauge train rolled off the production line on Friday at CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co., Ltd in central China's Hunan Province.

It is the third generation of meter-gauge train independently developed by the China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC) for Malaysia's Electric Train Service (ETS). It will be placed into operation on the west coast of Malaysia, with a total line length of about 950 kilometers.

The ETS3 train will greatly increase the passenger capacity and operational efficiency in the local rail transit network, promoting the modernization of Malaysia's rail transit.


China's homegrown regional jetliner, the ARJ21, launched its first air route to Central Asia on Friday, according to Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC), its developer.

The aircraft was operated by Chengdu Airlines. It took off from Kashgar Prefecture in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region at 10:38 a.m. on Friday and arrived in Khujand in Tajikistan more than two hours later, COMAC said.

The opening of the air route will further promote exchanges between Kashgar and Khujand in fields including economy, culture and tourism, contributing to the development of the "Air Silk Road," according to COMAC.
