China in the last week of December 2016 commenced operations of Shanghai-Kunming line, one of the world's longest high-speed railways.
The link joins the prosperous eastern coast to the less-developed southwestern part of the country.
The launch of the Shanghai-Kunming line signifies that China’s high-speed rail grid has taken shape and connects almost all provinces on the Chinese mainland.
The line is a part of the China Railway High-speed’s system of high-speed rail corridors, beginning in Shanghai and ending in Kunming.
