A new metro line project in Vietnam has been officially inaugurated.

The Cat Linh-Ha Dong metro line was constructed by a Chinese company.

It's the first one of its type completed in the Southeast Asian country.

Over the past two months of commercial operation, the metro line transported some 15,000 passengers per day and has welcomed 1 million passengers till last Thursday.

The Cat Linh-Ha Dong elevated railway project is the first metro line in the Vietnamese capital city.

It's expected to solve the rapidly increasing traffic amount in the western area of Hanoi and contribute to the socio-economic development of the city.

Under a city development plan, Hanoi will have a total of 10 urban railway routes by 2030.

Construction of the Cat Linh-Ha Dong elevated railway officially started in October 2011.

Its trial run was completed in December 2020, with thousands of trips covering over 70,000 km, enabling the system to operate commercially in late 2021.

GLOBALink | Global investors cast vote of confidence in Chinese economy

Thursday, 23 December 2021 17:17

BEIJING, Dec. 23 (Xinhua) --Despite the pandemic-induced worldwide economic slowdown, global investors have continued to double down on investment in China this year.

Experts say that is because the Chinese economy has continued to recover steadily.

China continues to be the top investment destination for global investors.

The Ministry of Commerce said, in the first 11 months of the year, foreign direct investment (FDI) into the Chinese mainland, in actual use, rose 15.9 percent year on year to 1.04 trillion yuan (157.2 billion U.S. dollars).

That has surpassed the whole year's FDI in 2020.

Meanwhile, China commits to opening up more sectors for foreign investment.

Progress was also made in terms of the structure of foreign investment.

China has trimmed nearly two-thirds of the negative list for foreign investment in recent years.

A new version of the list will be unveiled soon.

GLOBALink | China's FAST telescope detects 509 new pulsars

Published in CHINA
Tuesday, 21 December 2021 14:51

GUIYANG, Dec. 20 (Xinhua) -- Using the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST), also dubbed as the "China Sky Eye," scientists have identified 509 new pulsars, which is four times of the total amount of pulsars identified by other telescopes around the world.

Pulsars, or fast-spinning neutron stars, originate from the imploded cores of massive dying stars through supernova explosions. With their high density and fast rotation, they are an ideal laboratory for studying the laws of physics in extreme environments.

Located in a naturally deep and round karst depression in southwest China's Guizhou Province, FAST started formal operation in January 2020. It is believed to be the world's most sensitive radio telescope.
