Having given up on an industrial future, the EU concentrates on its industrial past

It is a sad day, but there you have it,
The 2011 European Tourism Day event will be entitled " Industrial heritage: differentiating the European tourism offer " and will be held on 27 September 2011, on the occasion of World Tourism Day.
And what is the lead item in this overview of European Industrial Heritage,
The Hanoi-Kunming railway
The Sino-Vietnamese Railway was built by France to connect Haiphong in Vietnam with Kunming in the Yunnan province of China. The 855 km line opened in 1910. The Chinese section of the railway is currently only used for freight but projects are ongoing to open it again to passengers transport.
Yup, something in Indo-China that's main purpose today is to help our competitors.
