         All railway construction tasks were fulfilled. The investment in fixed assets of railways in China reached RMB 748.9 billion, including RMB 661.6 billion on national railways. New lines with a total length of 4,208 kilometers were put into operation, including 2,168 kilometers of high-speed railways. The length of railways in operation in China exceeded 150,000 kilometers, including more than 40,000 kilometers of high-speed railways.
        Transport support capacity was further enhanced. The freight traffic volume of national railways grew for three consecutive years, reaching 3.72 billion tons, with a year-on-year increase of 4.0%. A total of 15,000 CRE trains were operated, carrying 1.46 million TEUs throughout the year, with a year-on-year increase of 22% and 29% respectively.

All are better than the targets.
        Labor productivity grew steadily. The labor productivity of transport of national railway reached RMB 440,000/person, with a year-on-year increase of 13.7%, and the work force per converted kilometer continued to decline.
