Israel seeks transportation cooperation with China

(People's Daily Online)

08:34, September 22, 2011

A senior Israeli official has vowed to broaden cooperation in the realm of transportation infrastructure with China, saying the "China model" is suitable for Israel.

Yisrael Katz, Israeli minister of transportation and road safety, said Tuesday in Beijing that Israel and China have reached an initial agreement about transportation infrastructure during his meeting with his Chinese counterpart Li Shenglin.

After he studied China's high-speed rail network, expressways as well as its subway and light rail systems and visited a number of equipment manufacturers, Katz said China's development in terms of transportation infrastructure is "impressive."

"My visit deepens my understanding of China as a strong country. The China model is fit for the development of the transportation infrastructure in Israel too, and we will use what we learn from China in Israel," Katz said.

He said Israel hopes Chinese companies participate in the construction of Israeli infrastructure, including airports, expressways and a light rail system, and through cooperation with China, Israeli companies will have chances to tap into the Chinese market.

He revealed that the Israeli cabinet has recently approved a budget of 35 billion U.S. dollars to develop transportation infrastructure. (Zhang Hongyu)
