China Northern Locomotive & Rolling Stock Corporation Limited (CNR) and Bangkok Mass Transit System Public Company Limited (BTSC) have signed an agreement to cooperatively explore metro market in Thailand.

BTSC, Thailand's most outstanding metro company, signed contract in 2007 to purchase 48 metro vehicles from China's Changchun Railway Vehicles Co., Ltd and bought 20 more based on the original contract in 2011.

At present, the company is bidding for more than one vehicle procurement projects in Thailand. Once BTSC wins the bid, it will take Changchun Railway Vehicles Co., Ltd as the first provider of the vehicles.

After 30 years’ development, China is pulling ahead in the global race for high-speed railway construction. And China's CNR is increasing efforts to develop into a global railways transportation industry and export base.
