The Philippines is set to have its first bullet train under the Duterte administration.

This was revealed by Martin Diño, the newly appointed chairman of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA), during the hearing of the House of Representatives transportation committee on Wednesday.


Diño said the construction of a bullet train would be under the Public-Private Partnership with a firm in China.

Diño said this project would be discussed during the trade and investment mission to China led by President Rodrigo Duterte himself later this month.
