The "One Belt and One Road" strategy gives a new opportunity for the China’s high-speed railway going abroad. High-speed railway, as an important part of infrastructure, will boost the Chinese "One Belt and One Road" strategy, too. High-speed railway in China has realized technology accumulation from introduction, digestion and absorption to indigenous innovation, and has reached the world's advanced level, which has fully capability to go abroad. That China’s high-speed railway goes abroad has a significant effect on national economic development and geopolitical politics. However, high-speed rail going abroad will face many risks. This paper will focus on the analysis of geopolitical and social risks, and put forward some countermeasures from the government and corporate levels.
