Thank you for this thread. It's a lot more convenient than slogging through the Indian forums for info.

IMO, it'll be interesting to see how the new metro integrates with Mumbai's overwhelmed legacy rail system.

This is a very cool and much needed project for a world class city like Mumbai.

China keen on investing $3 billion in new Mumbai metro project

The Chinese Government is ready to pump in up to $3 billion into the proposed metro project connecting Colaba in south Mumbai to Santacruz in the northern fringe of the megapolis, a top official said on Friday.

The Chinese are also keen on participating in other infrastructure projects apart from those in the farming sector in the country, the official said.

"We are keen to bring our technology for the new metro project in Mumbai. We are also ready to invest in technology upgrade for the textiles sector, infrastructure and agriculture projects in the country," Chinese Consul General in Mumbai Liu Youfa said, on sidelines of an event in Mumbai.

He said they are "willing to invest $ 3 billion in the metro project through foreign investments along with latest technology."

The feasibility study on the proposed Colaba-SEEPZ (Santacruz Electronic Export Processing Zone at Andheri) metro project is ready and the Maharashtra Government is looking for technology and funding for the venture.

Liu claimed China is already providing magnetic and bullet trains technology to over 30 countries.

Indian Merchants Chamber President Niranjan Hiranandani, who was also present at the event, said the industry body will do everything to help attract Chinese investment into the infra projects in Mumbai.

"We need to work on two-way investment which will reduce the trade deficit on Indian side and create more jobs," Liu said.

The trade between the two Asian giants stood at $73.9 billion in 2011 and dropped marginally to $70 billion in 2012 due to economic slowdown, he said.

The Consul General, an economist by training, spoke on further developing relations between India and China.

"Together, the two countries comprise 37 per cent of the world's population. If we both come together, nobody can stop our growth. However, if one of us focuses individually on growth, it's going to hinder the other," Liu said and called for more bilateral trade and investment.
