China Railway Construction Corporation Limited (abbreviated CRCC) is a state-owned construction enterprise that is the second largest construction and engineering company in the world by revenue in 2014[3] and second highest in accounts payable by market cap as of 2015.[4]

The limited company was incorporated in 2007 in order to float the assets of "China Railway Construction Corporation" [Group] (CRCCG, simplified Chinese: 中国铁道建筑总公司; traditional Chinese: 中國鐵道建築總公司, or the holding company) in Shanghai and Hong Kong stock exchange.

Corporate structure[edit]

CRCC is under the supervision of the State Council of the People's Republic of China. Since February 2008, A shares and H shares of CRCC are listed on the Shanghai and Hong Kong stock exchanges.

The financial report of the parent company (holding company) is not disclosed. As both parent and subsidiary share the same English name (they have different names in Chinese), the business activities of the holding company was often incorrectly mixed up with the publicly floated limited liability subsidiary by the media.

Formerly the railway arm of the People's Liberation Army (found 1948 and became part of Ministry of Railways from 1982). Along with China Railway Engineering Corporation, both railway construction super conglomerates were under the Ministry until 2000.

In 2003, China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation, another former entity of Ministry of Railways, was assigned to China Railway Construction Corporation as its subsidiary.


In preparation for listing, China Railway Construction Corporation Limited was incorporated in 2007 as a limited company which received most of the assets of the parent company.[5] 5 Build–operate–transfer projects were not included, namely Chongqing Tiefa Suiyu Highway, Nanjing Yangtze River Tunnel, Beijing Tongda Jingcheng Highway, Xianyang Zhongtie Road and Bridge and Guangdong Chaojie Highway. Later on in 2015 CRCC bought Chongqing Tiefa Suiyu Highway from the parent company, while 20% was retained by Chongqing Expressway Co., Ltd.[6]

The company premiered on the Shanghai and Hong Kong in February 2008, raising USD 5.7 billion, making the second largest IPO of that year. The performance was poorer than expected because of poor investment atmosphere from United States subprime mortgage crisis and China's economic macro-control.

International markets[edit]

CRCC is dedicated to becoming a global construction company. The effort to achieve this status was apparent in the 2000s when by end of the decade, the company had 209 projects in 35 countries, mostly in Africa.[7] Its five major overseas markets then were Algeria, Nigeria, Libya, Angola and Saudi Arabia.

In the succeeding decade, CRCC has branched to more overseas markets and moved up the value chain into overseas high speed rail construction. The company's work in new markets seemed to gather speed in Europe with the announcement of a deal to construct a stadium for F.C. Internazionale Milano as part of an acquisition by a Chinese investor in the club but the acquisition did not go through and so apparently the stadium deal tied to it.[8][9]



CRCC has built much of the transportation infrastructure in China including high speed rail, subways, and expressways.


Middle East and North Africa[edit]


  • Angola Angola CRCC built a 1344 km railway line in Angola that opened in 2015 for a contract value of $1.83 bn.[16]
  • Nigeria Nigeria The China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation unit signed a $3.5bn contract with the Ogun State in April 2015 to construct a railway line through the state.

Other business areas[edit]

The main business activity of the company is in construction and engineering but it is also engaged in real estate development and copper mining.

Corporate social responsibility[edit]

A team from CRCC in March 2013 joined in the rescue efforts after the worst building collapse in Tanzanian history. The team was praised by the national newspaper for giving the rescue operation Dar es Salaam focus and an urgent pace.[17]
