108 Giant Chinese Projects That Are Reshaping The World





There is an old Chinese saying that goes: If you want to be rich, you must first build roads.

And, boy, have they built some roads: In the past year, we've seen the world's longest sea bridge, the world's longest gas pipeline and
a high-speed railway that's left everyone else in the dust literally.

The resultant infrastructure push is incredible. A list of 108 super projects
