Russia And China Want To Build The Longest High-Speed Railway In The World…
“Japan’s bullet train system is no longer the world’s fastest nor does it carry the highest number of passengers. China and other countries have stolen a march over Japan with speedier trains.”
My sense is many nations do not wish to be held down by the WEST (U.S.-NATO) Allies from advancing technologically and enjoying a higher living standard.
In that light BRICS may look very appealing to many nations.
