Workers walk on a continuous beam at the construction site of Jakarta-Bandung high-speed-railway (HSR) in Bekasi, West Java province, Indonesia, Aug. 15, 2020. Construction for a major continuous beam of the China-built Jakarta-Bandung HSR in West Java province was completed on the same day. The construction of the 142-kilometer Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway project with a designed speed of 350 kilometers per hour, was launched in 2016 and built with Chinese technology. The year 2020 has been a tough one for world economies amid the global COVID-19 pandemic. Against this backdrop, China has seen resilient cooperation with the Belt and Road (B&R) countries. As the coronavirus pandemic severely hits international transport, the China-Europe freight trains play a pivotal role in land transport among countries, as shown by the rising number of trains, opening of new routes, and the volume of goods. Major B&R projects, including the China-Laos railway, China-Thailand railway, Jakarta-Bandung High-Speed Railway, and Hungary-Serbia railway are making positive headway. China's aid to Belt and Road partner countries and the experience it shared with them during the COVID-19 pandemic are valuable and render the Health Silk Road more concrete. (Xinhua/Zulkarnain)
