French firm Alstom has offered China what it claims is the world’s fastest train, as part of a bid to win train supply contracts for nationwide rail projects.

The company’s in-development 360kmph (224mph) Automotrice Grande Vitesse (AGV) train is competing with Canadian firm Bombardier and domestic suppliers for Chinese contracts.

The AGV is scheduled to enter its first commercial services next year in Italy.

The company says it is particularly looking at secondary cities adding new lines and may also seek more partners in China.
