Japan is expected to win the India High Speed Train Project Tender: Japan is expected to win the tender for the construction of the country's first high speed train. Japanese companies lost Indonesia's high-speed train tender to Chinese companies after a $ 5 billion loan from the Chinese government to Indonesia. However, with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit to India this week, Japan is expected to win India's high-speed tender.
India's first high speed train will be 505 km long and will connect Bombay and Ahmedabad. The rapid railway, whose construction is expected to begin in 2017, is planned to be completed in 2023.
