Updated: 2021-09-03

Jinxi Industries Group Co based in Taiyuan, capital of North China's Shanxi province, recently completed the production of EMU train and hollow axles for China-Laos Railway.

Railway wagons, railway axles, bolster side frames, and other railway vehicle accessories produced by Jinxi Industries Group Co have covered more than 20 provinces in China and have improved the reputation of "Made in China" in North America, South America, East Asia, Southeast Asia, and South Asia regions. 

Early in December 2020, the group received its first orders for EMU train and hollow axles for the EMU train project of the China-Laos Railway. It delivered the products on time in March this year and offered after-sales service.

After trial operations, the group's products have fully met customer requirements, resulting in a second round of orders from the rail operator.

The China-Laos Railway is the first transnational railway mainly funded and built by China. It is jointly operated by the two countries and directly connected to the Chinese railway network.

The railway starts from the city of Yuxi and passes through the city of Pu'er in the Xishuangbanna Dai autonomous prefecture in Southwest China's Yunnan province to Vientiane, capital of Lao. It has a designed speed of 160 kilometers per hour.
