Li said around 8,000 kilometerrs (roughly 5,000 miles) of railway in addition to pushing for high-profile overseas contracts. Shares of China CNR Corp. (6199.HKG, 601299.SHA) and CSR Corp. (1766.HKG, 601766.SHA), which previously announced a merger plan intended to boost exports of high-speed rail technology, reversed early losses Thursday to rise by as much as 10% in Shanghai trading.
