How will this project enhance the US’s competitiveness in the global economy?

A:

This will both reduce shipping costs per mile and increase speed and reliability of shipping between regions in the US, which is a cost reduction for existing producers. As China invests in electrifying over half of its rail network, and focuses on transitioning from a low-wage producer to a high tech producer, it makes no sense for the US to gift them with an advantage in transportation efficiency.
