Jakarta-Bandung railway

The Jakarta-Bandung railway is Indonesia’s first high-speed rail project. The planned 150-kilometer-long rail line will link Indonesia’s capital Jakarta to its fourth largest city, Bandung. Chinese businesses will participate in funding and construction. The line has a design speed of 250-300 kilometers per hour, and is to be built with Chinese technology and equipment to meet Chinese standards. The travel time from Jakarta to Bandung is expected to be shortened to about 40 minutes after the completion of the project.

An agreement was reached on October 16, 2015 between China Railway International Co Ltd and four Indonesian state-owned enterprises to establish a Chinese-Indonesian consortium tasked to construct and operate the line. The project represents an innovative approach to international cooperation, with businesses from both countries involved under the sponsorship of the two governments. A groundbreaking ceremony for the project was held on January 21, 2016.

The rail link is expected to stimulate growth in such sectors as metallurgy, manufacturing, infrastructure, power generation and logistics, create jobs, and promote structural transformation in Indonesia. It will, in particular, facilitate travel, expand business opportunities and promote tourism along the rail line. It will also provide a sound basis for further cooperation between China and Indonesia in such fields as infrastructure development and trade.

雅万铁路

雅万铁路是中国企业参与投资建设的印度尼西亚首条高速铁路,从该国首都雅加达至第四大城市万隆,全长150公里,将采用中国技术、中国标准和中国装备,设计时速为每小时250至300公里。建成通车后,从雅加达至万隆的时间将缩短为约40分钟。2015年10月16日,中国铁路总公司在雅加达与印度尼西亚4家国有企业签署协议,组建中国--印尼雅万高铁合资公司,负责印尼雅加达至万隆高速铁路项目的建设和运营。雅万高铁项目是国际上首个由政府主导搭台、两国企业间进行合作建设的高铁项目,是国际铁路合作模式的一次探索和创新。2016年1月21日,雅万高铁项目开工奠基。雅万铁路不仅将直接拉动印尼冶炼、制造、基建、电力、物流等配套产业发展,增加就业机会,推动产业结构升级,而且建成通车后,能够极大地方便民众出行,促进沿线商业开发,带动沿线旅游产业快速发展,并为中国--印尼之间在基础设施、商贸等领域的进一步合作奠定良好基础。
