HS2 spokesperson, said:
"HS2 Ltd welcomes the prospect of Chinese investment in the country’s new £42.6bn north-south railway. In addition to possible foreign investment, like Crossrail, HS2 will provide hugely significant opportunities for British firms – large and small – in the supply chain and opportunities for British people to fill the 400,000 jobs that delivery of HS2 will support. HS2 is being planned and will be built to the highest construction, environmental and performance standards already in place."
