China’s Initial High Speed Trains
China’s initial high speed trains were imported or built under technology transfer agreements with foreign train-makers including Siemens, Bombardier and Kawasaki Heavy Industries. However, Chinese engineers re-designed and further improved the internal components of the train in order for the train to run at much higher speed. China currently holds close to 1,000 local and international patents for high speed rail technology. Foreign trainmakers continue to sell certain components but no longer supply train sets for China's high speed trains Most of the China Railway High-speed (CRH) train components are manufactured by local Chinese suppliers, with only a few parts imported.
