JAKARTA, Apr 6 (FAM) – China’s first high-speed railway project in Indonesia will push Southeast Asian countries to adopt Chinese standards in building the best quality rail networks, according to Zhou Zhiliang, chairman of China Railway Signal and Communication Co, on Wednesday.

He said because most Southeast Asian nations have only just begun to build new railway lines or bought new trains, they are keen to acquire technical support from China to help with maintenance, training and other services.
