CRRC High-Speed EMU Maximizes Mobility for Hundreds of Millions of Travelers During China National Day Holiday
BEIJING, Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

CRRC ("CRRC Corporation Limited" or "the company"), one of the world's leading 
rail transportation equipment providers, has enabled travel for hundreds of 
millions in China with their high-speed Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) trains -- 
playing a key role in the revival of regional tourism and enabling travelers to 
go ahead on National Day Holiday.

During the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day holidays, China's national rail 
network, which includes high-speed rail, saw over 379 million passengers use 
their services daily. According to a China Tourism Research Institute survey, 
tourists averaged a travel distance of 213 kilometers during Golden Week -- a 
56% increase over this year's Labor Day and Dragon Boat Festival holidays. As a 
manufacturer of China's rail transit systems, CRRC has been integral in 
boosting China's domestic tourism economy, supporting people to go further and 
explore more destinations in their own backyard.

"At CRRC, we offer safe and comfortable transportation, a spectacular and 
pleasant journey, the opportunity to enjoy a change in scenery and, ultimately, 
a rich and fulfilling life filled with extraordinary experiences. CRRC's brand 
influence and achievements have assisted greatly in establishing a high-end, 
high-quality image for Chinese manufacturing worldwide, and genuinely 
contributed to the development of our nation's economy," said Hualong Liu, 
Chairman and Executive Director of CRRC.

In the past four years, 68 cities at the prefecture-level or above have opened 
new high-speed railways. At the end of July 2020, the country's railway 
operating mileage reached 141,400 kilometers, of which high-speed rail mileage 
accounted for 36,000 kilometers. Regional development strategies, such as the 
Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Integration Plan, Yangtze River Integration Plan, and 
Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay area, will continue to promote the 
construction of rail transit across the country.

In addition to the research, development, design and production of EMU trains, 
CRRC provides China's cities and provinces with a full suite of customized 
products and services including locomotives, passenger cars, freight cars, 
urban metro and subway rail transit.

Beyond production, CRRC has actively cultivated an entire industrial chain 
related to the production and distribution of rail equipment. CRRC's high-speed 
unit supports the development of 10 industries including steel, aluminum, 
machinery, electronics, electrical engineering, precision instruments, 
chemicals and decorative materials. The effects of this have radiated to 20 
provinces and cities, directly supporting over 600 core supplier companies and 
1,500 secondary supplier companies. With an economic effect ratio of 1:5, CRRC 
has become an engine for the development of regional economies and championed 
growth for related industries.

Further afield, CRRC's combination of product, innovation and service has seen 
the company expand its overseas business from a single product export to a 
combined export of product, capital, technology, management and service, which 
can be found in 107 countries worldwide. In Indonesia, for example, CRRC 
actively sought out strategic partnerships and formed synergies with 
like-minded brands to jointly promote the design, manufacture and after-sales 
maintenance of the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed rail.
