CAZAUX, France: French companies are among the foreign players who are keen on participating in the planned high-speed rail project between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, Singapore transport minister Lui Tuck Yew said Thursday.
However, the project is not yet at a stage where decisions about the best contenders are being made, Lui told reporters in France, where he is accompanying president Tony Tan Keng Yam on a state visit.
"For us now, what we try to do is make sure we learn as much as we can about all the possible systems that could fit the Singapore-KL high-speed rail," he said at the Cazaux Air Base in south-west France, he said
Singapore also needs to have deep discussions with Malaysia on "a whole range of regulatory, structural, financial, commercial, operational matters" on the project, said Lui, who is also second minister for defence. - The Straits Times/Asia News Network
