Company Background

China Railway Construction (CRCC) is China's state-owned railway constructor. Its business operations are growing rapidly as it expands to Southeast Asia, Africa, South America and Eastern Europe. It is often ranked among the world's top general contractors.

As the successor of the Railway Corps of the People's Liberation Army, CRCC has developed railway infrastructure under the Ministry of Railways. It changed into its current form in 2007 following state-owned company reforms. Its government-controlled parent company still has 60% of outstanding shares.

CRCC builds railways as well as hydropower plants, airports and housing. It holds a 90% share in the domestic railway maintenance facilities. It is currently focusing on winning more contracts for building subways and high-speed railways overseas. It is aiming to expand its infrastructure exports, including railway design, construction, rail car manufacturing and railway traffic control systems.

As a state-owned company, its business is susceptible to Communist Party policies. Its overseas strategy is basically the same as Beijing's foreign policy. While CRCC can benefit from the government's infrastructure export policy, many developed countries argue it has problems in ensuring transparency in management and safety.
