Company background

China Railway Group is a leading infrastructure builder owned by the Chinese government. It is the biggest construction company in Asia by revenue and one of the largest in the world in terms of business scale. Its core business is constructing railway infrastructure. China Railway is promoting the development of high-speed railways and urban transit systems at home and abroad. It is rapidly expanding by diversifying into such areas as expressway and bridge construction, and property development.

China Railway traces its roots back to the Ministry of Railways' General Bureau of Capital Construction, established in 1950. In 1989, China Railway Engineering Corp., the parent of China Railway, was founded. CREC became a state-owned enterprise under the State Council's direct supervision in 2003. China Railway went public in 2007 after a reorganization that saw it become CREC's core unit.

China Railway has built two-thirds of the total length of railways across China. Based on the expertise it has accumulated at home, the company is looking to boost infrastructure exports as a core player in the "One Belt, One Road," or "New Silk Road," initiative promoted by the administration of President Xi Jinping. In particular, the company plans to accelerate exports of railway infrastructure -- from rails to traffic control systems to rolling stock -- in collaboration with such concerns as CRRC, a state-owned manufacturer.

By 2020, China Railway plans to double its ratio of overseas sales to 10%. The company hopes to increase orders from Southeast Asian and other nations, takin
