1035 kilometers long Laos-China railway has been launched recently with the support of Huawei’s 5G technology and smart railway solution.
To celebrate the grand opening of the Laos-China Railway, an event was organised where the General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee and the Chinese President Xi Jinping and the Laos President Thongloun Sisoulith, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party were present virtually.
Traveling from the China-Laos border to the Vientiane capital has shortened from two days to three hours. Departing from Kunming and arriving in Vientiane can now be achieved on the same day.
Huawei Smart Railway Solution has supported the Laos-China Railway in the digitalisation efforts, enabling advances in safety and security across all aspects of the railway, including construction, operations, and maintenance.
At the same time, Huawei works closely with the Laos telecom operators to build the high-speed network, ensure stable connectivity; the advanced technology has benefited the Laos people and passengers.
“The launching of the Laos-China Railway is a great vision of the leaders of both countries. Huawei worked together with the Laos telecom operators to build the wireless network along the railway,” said by Dr Boviengkham VONGDARA, Minister of Technology and Communications of Laos.
Huawei Laos project director Somlith Nammanininh said, “I believe the Laos-China Railway will foster the economy, help Laos to integrate into the global market, create more opportunities for the local business and people.”
Like other countries, Bangladesh will have the opportunities to utilise this advance technology in various industrial and development works.
