The Russian and Chinese presidents have left Beijing for Tianjin, a port city on the shores of Bohai Bay, located 120 km from the Chinese capital, on a high-speed train.
Xi Jinping wanted to demonstrate the advantages of high-speed transport, as well as Chinese engineering.
At the moment, China is experiencing a boom in the construction of high-speed railways. Today, the country has the world's longest high-speed rail network, extending about 22,000 km.
In August 2017, the new generation "Fuxin" high-speed trains began to run along two railway lines connecting Beijing, Tianjin and several cities in Hebei Province.
