AsiaRail 2006 International Congress 14-17 November

Wanchai, Hong Kong – The 13th Annual AsiaRail 2006 International Congress is a CEO level, strategic conference for the Asian rail industry with representation from key countries in the Asia Pacific region. This year’s Congress promises to bring together all relevant players in the Asia rail industry including rail operators, financiers, investors, manufacturers, equipment suppliers both domestic and international, bankers, legal counsel – all converging together to discuss the latest issues in project updates, government initiatives, rail network expansion plans, and the future development of rail in Asia.

The Congress will be spread over 2 and half days and will proceed as follows:

China plans to invest a little more than US$200 billion by 2020 to expand its existing rail network with all major cities involved in new projects. The Hong Kong government has announced the planned terms for the merger between its 2 rail operators – what does this mean for current and future projects. Day One will also feature airport rail links and will highlight case studies – HK, Singapore, Malaysia and Bangkok.
