Railway Sector Assessment for People's Republic of China

This short report summarizes the findings of the railway sector assessment for the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Since the PRC’s membership of CAREC focuses on two regions in the west and north of the country that have borders with other CAREC member countries, namely the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (XUAR) and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region (IMAR), the role of the PRC’s cross-border railways that pass through these regions is the main subject of the report. It examines the context, characteristics, performance, and potential of railways, and identifies opportunities for future investment, commercialization, and reform.
