China's railway construction has met the challenges, relying on independent innovation. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CCP), Chinese railway workers have dug tunnels in the mountains and built bridges over the waters. Thus, China's railway network increased by approximately 53 thousand kilometers. Among them, more than 4 thousand 200 kilometers entered service in 2021. Of the 24,3 billion passengers carried, 13,6 billion preferred the high-speed rail.
