|High Speed Train
|The development of a high-speed railway line between China and the ASEAN region has a wide array of benefits to all the participating countries. This research aims at ascertaining the possible benefits, both social and economic, that the participating countries are likely to enjoy should this project be implemented successfully. The research also analyses the Chinese people’s awareness, knowledge, attitude and opinion about this connection.
The Chinese people believe that the inception of this project would have a significant impact on business, connectivity, and international relations between China and Thailand among others. The Chinese people are generally aware of the proposed project and are optimistic that it would benefit the ASEAN region. Their attitudes towards this project are generally good, since, according to the primary research, most of them support the idea.
This research uses primary data collection methods with a survey that focussed on both Thai and Chinese participants. The questions in the questionnaires sought to establish what the participants expected from the project, and whether its implementation would boost their means and desire to do business.
This research finds out that notwithstanding the various disagreements that have led to several rescheduling of this project and the disagreements among the countries in the region, the benefits of this project outweigh any shortcomings, and the result would be a more developed region, increased tourism, and easy movement within the region and into China.
This research concludes that the Chinese people are optimistic about this project in that they believe it would significant positive effects of the region’s tourism, business, and international relations. The Chinese people are aware of this project and as this research establishes, there are a few problems that challenge its successful implementation, but the chances of its success are good.
