A consortium led by the China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC) has signed a $400 million contract to provide the Malaysia National Infrastructure Corporation with 42 high-tech unmanned trains.

The agreement is China's first export of fully automatic trains. The total value of the contract is about 1.56 billion ringgit, or more than $400 million. Experts say the trains employ the highest standards in driverless technology.

The trains will also use other advanced technology to enhance safety and stability. Forty of the trains will be manufactured in Malaysia.
