  • We Americans must have assisted with this video as it has horrible intrusive music instead of educational narration! Congratulations to the mechanical engineering!

  • Every Muslim country is seeing CHINA as their saver otherwise everyone knows who is behind
    Afganistan
    Iraq
    Libya
    Syria
    Fuckup US

  • WARNING : THE COMMENTS FOR THIS VIDEO ARE DESTRUCTIVE , UNNECESSARY, AND MAKE NO SENSE. Cant seem to find the good to say about China development , only how bad the US is. EGO , and unwanted opinions reside here

  • People are worrying about housing, energy.. raising cost of livings like food, dairy .. but not worrying about “made in china” rubbish products … Without the US market .. China would be stuffed.. china can’t shift into domestic consuming.. all asian know very well .. the chinese are very tight when come to spending. Also 4-2-1 china one child policy has push all the pressure of one person to look after 7 people.. apart energy and food on the table.. they have nothing left to spend. China commie regime has been printing more RMB money to stimulate rubbish infrastructures leading to nowhere to help curb down unemployment rates.. apart from that it will increase pushing the Belt Road Initiative debt traps projects into those corrupted countries to collect foreign exchange and others’ resources to reserve .. and all have been funded by china printing RMB and Chinese workers.. and the cost of those debt traps projects are unimaginable massive and pressure .. end up those countries have to pay back debts with their own sovereign and resources.. Also china commies have been trying to block all foreign currencies reserve flowing offshores .. that’s how the financial hub of Asia .. the Hong Kong crisis has begun .. as china commie xi jing ping want to control Hong Kong with iron fists..

  • Surery, their High Speed Trains have designated (impregnated/overpopulated/fornicated/overrated/Great Grandma watched and Masturbated), High Speed Baby making Caboose's, for to make Babies, faster, with and an area for the Newborns to hurry the hell up and grow the hell up, faster, in, so as they, too, can make and have a Baby, while they await their destination, which is the nearest High Speed Baby making Caboose.

  • lol. I love seeing those biased Americans comment on China. Sure, China is not perfect, but it is continueously improving at a very fast pace. If you have a chance to visit, you will be amazed by the people and its infrastructures. Or simply go on Quora get some true answers written by those who visited. Most importantly, stop reading those fake propaganda shits

  • Professor, professor, professor I have a question for You. When the time comes to start amortizing the lessen money to build such's white elephants. WHO…………PAY?

  • Chinese people are hard working people. The rapid growth and development of engineering projects in China is impressive. Go China!!!

  • After watching this video-clips, the craziest one is the one who produces this film and entitles "10 Craziest Engineering Projects in China"

  • What are we in the US doing? Why do we keep on destroying other countries and not building up our own? Dammit. At this point, China is the hope of humankind. Most likely, the west will collapse.

  • pope francis 2018
    "Peace builds bridges, whereas hatred is the builder of walls. You must decide, in life: either I will make bridges or I will make walls. Walls divide and hatred grows: when there is division, hatred grows. Bridges unite, and when there is a bridge hatred can go away, because I can hear the other and speak with the other. When you shake the hand of a friend, of a person, you make a human bridge. You make a bridge. Instead, when you strike someone, when you insult another person, you build a wall. Hatred always grows with walls."
