Jerry Brown seeks Chinese funding for California high-speed rail

California Gov. Jerry Brown heads to China this week to seek investments in his state’s “green” projects, including an astronomically expensive high-speed rail project that is floundering despite receiving tens of billions in federal stimulus money.


Brown begins a week of meetings on Tuesday with a focus on bilateral trade and investment opportunities, as well as opening a new California foreign trade and investment office.

China’s rail system is the longest in the world, covering 5,800 miles, and is heavily financed by the government, according to the San Jose Mercury News. Brown will ride the rail system from Beijing to Shanghai accompanied by Dan Richard, the chairman of California’s high-speed rail board, Dan Richard, according to the Mercury News.
