“In accordance with this memorandum we held a meeting of the working group to agree that by December 15 we are to produce a combined report regarding the possibility of Chinese companies’ participation in the project. In other words, the conditions on which they may join in,” Itar-Tass quoted Misharin as saying.
The four-chapter report will reflect the basic principles of the financial model, the regulatory and legal structure, feasibility of investment, construction technologies and the localization of production.

 Memorandum on Cooperation
On October 13 Russia and China signed a memorandum on cooperation in developing high-speed railway lines. In accordance with the document the parties will draft a project for a high-speed Eurasian transport corridor Moscow-Beijing, including the pilot project Moscow-Kazan. The memorandum envisages cooperation in design and construction work, maintenance, equipment supplies, investment and financing.
