This new series in China Daily celebrates the technologies, industries, infrastructure and capital goods projects for being the world's most impressive in their class. They are also a testament to the tremendous progress China has made in recent decades on the back of its reform and opening-up policy as well as the nation's drive for high-quality development and a modern industrial system.

This first instalment features the world's highest completed bridge. Situated on the border between Southwest China's Yunnan and Guizhou provinces, the four-lane Beipanjiang Bridge has a total length of 1,341.4 meters, and soars 565 meters over the Beipan River — equivalent to a 200-storey skyscraper.
