More part-time and full-time workers would be hired to meet increasing demands for goods and services.

According to a video posted by B1M Limited, a construction, architectural, and engineering video channel — titled, “The Unstoppable Growth of China's High-Speed Rail Network” — studies have found that tourism increases by about 20% in Chinese provinces “connected to the high speed network.” The same increase in regional tourism resulting from building fast passenger train lines also happened in other developed nations such as France, it reported.

Imagine what Twin Ports businesses and both city governments could achieve with a 20% increase in tourism. More part-time and full-time workers would be hired to meet increasing demands for goods and services. You could be hired to fill these newly created jobs resulting from the construction of our 90-mph Northern Lights Express train.
