Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chairman Martin Diño has revealed its plans for the Philippines’ first bullet train which is to be built by a Chinese company.

GMA News Online reports that the proposed bullet train will ply the tracks from Subic, Zambales to Clark, Pampanga. According to Diño, meeting with the still-unnamedChinese company is one of the reasons why President Rodrigo Duterte will be flying to China next week.
“It is our first bullet train. Hopefully, magawa agad,” said Chairman Diño.
It’s still unclear as to when the projected completion will be, but if this pushes through, we will have a fast and efficient means of transportation between the two cities. Commuting from Manila to the northern provinces will also see a big change.
