China launches its first self-developed bullet train 'Fuxing' as Beijing eyes global high-speed rail market
China today unveiled its next generation bullet train 'Fuxing', which boasts a top speed of 400kmh (248mph).
Fuxing, whose name means 'rejuvenation', is the first bullet train designed and manufactured by Chinese engineers without help from the West, according to Chinese state media.
Chinese companies spent just 13 years learning to build world-class high-speed trains after acquiring know-how from leading firms in developed countries, such as Japan, France, Germany and Canada.
