01-12-16: Malaysia and Singapore to sign MOU on joint high speed rail

By Anya Palm

In July the two countries agreed on building a 350 km long railway that will reduce travel time from Singapore to the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur, to just 90 minutes.

Following a string of complications, mostly concerning technicalities and practical details, both Prime Ministers now confirm that the project will be up and running very soon. The agreement will most likely be signed on Dec. 21.
