Japan aims at Singapore-Kuala Lumpur bullet train link cutting travel time to 90 minutes

                                                                   Japan Bullet Train

After beating China by winning the contract to build a $15 billion rail in India, Japan is setting its sights on selling its bullet trains to a high-speed line being planned between Singapore and the Malaysian capital.

Japanese Transport Minister Keiichi Ishii told reporters Tuesday in Tokyo the government supports the bid, which would create a new market for companies such as Hitachi to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.

Ishii said cooperation between the government and business had been instrumental in winning last week’s deal with India.
