It is being reported Chinese rail giant CRRC is going to join the bidding for Britain`s second high-speed railway project.
The plan is to link London with the northern British city of Birmingham.
The UK parliament has already approved the first stage of the line`s construction, which is set to start in 2017.
It`s a project said to be worth 10`s of billions of dollars.
For more on the possibility of China`s involvement in the project, and the economic ties between China and the UK, CRI`s Wang Mengzhen spoke earlier with John Ross, senior fellow with the Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies at Renmin University.
