This is great news if real; a tunnel from Finland to continental Europe has been a wish list for a long time

A proposed link between the Estonian and Finnish capitals is set for a boost from China’s Belt and Road initiative.

Good way to exchange the Renminbi to Euro 1 Renminbi is 13 cents of euro and get some real currency and maybe legitimize there currency .

I for one am excited about this as it connects Finland with continental Europe without going through Scandinavia which includes ferries and bad railways.

Finland and Estonia are geographically very close and the Gulf between is not that deep. The main issue with the pan-European railway dream is that most countries in EU and Russia have different railway dimensions making them incompatible. bozo.gif

It looks like a Dubai construction firm is also contributing...do they smell oil? I am just wondering what is in it for China and Saudia Arabia?

A route via Finland from Russia is an alternative when it comes to delivering LNG (Nord Stream) and goods from Asia, bypassing "unreliable" countries (aka shit countries).
