Duterte admin to build first bullet train with the help of Chinese firm
"It is our first bullet train. Hopefully, magawa agad."
This was the revelation of Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chairman Martin Diño during an inquiry by the House transportation committee.
The railway system would be built between Subic in Zambales and Clark in Pampanga said Diño.
"The bullet train project will be carried out through a public-private partnership with a Chinese company", told Diño to reporters.
Discussions on the railway project would be part of President Duterte's state visit to China on October 18 to 21 according to the SBMA Chairman.
High-speed trains usually operate at speeds of around 200 km per hour, which is really a big help compare to trains of the Metro Rail Transit, Light Rail Transit, and Philippine National Railways run at average speeds of 40 km/h.
