The message of greetings reads, in part:
“You have a wide range of most important subjects on your agenda, including overcoming the effects of the global economic crisis and building on the new opportunities opened up by the 1520 Space project. To achieve your goals, you will need to improve the railways infrastructure, optimise freight and passenger traffic, and introduce the latest technology and management systems.
I hope that the recommendations you make will be implemented and will help to develop the railway network in individual countries and throughout whole regions using a common gauge.”
The business forum is devoted to integration of transport systems in countries using the 1520 mm railway gauge.
