China on track to develop Indian railways as Xi heads to S.Asia : September 14, 2014,

NEW DELHI/BEIJING China will pledge to invest billions of dollars in India's rail network during a visit by President Xi Jinping this week, bringing more than diplomatic nicety to the neighbours' first summit since Narendra Modi became prime minister in May. The leaders of Asia's three biggest economies China, India and Japan have crisscrossed the region this month, lobbying for strategic influence, building defence ties, and seeking new business opportunities. Beijing's bid to ramp up commercial ties in India comes despite a territorial dispute that has flared anew in recent years, raising concerns in New Delhi, where memories of a humiliating border war defeat in 1962 run deep.
