Description

A PSB Academy X CILTS Collaboration

Can the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project make operational profit? Dr. Tomoo Kikuchi, Visiting Senior Fellow at Nanyang Technological University, addresses this question, pointing out that population density in the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR line may not be high enough to make the HSR profitable. To improve the profit margin, the HSR has to help strengthen Kuala Lumpur’s and Singapore’s positions as regional economic hubs. Dr. Kichuchi argues that the profitability of HSR will depend on the extent of regional economic integration and how urban clusters unfold within ASEAN member states.
