Singapore and Malaysia have agreed to build a high speed rail link between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, a move that will “dramatically improve” the connectivity between the two countries.

The rail link will “usher in a new era of strong growth, prosperity and opportunities for both countries,” said a joint statement from Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak today.

“It will facilitate travel between KL and Singapore, enhance business linkages and bring the peoples of Malaysia and Singapore closer together,” it said. “Ultimately, this project will give both countries greater stakes in each other’s prosperity and success.”
