Minister’s Corner

I do feel appreciation that UIC 10th World Congress on High Speed Rail, constituting the most comprehensive international congress and trade exhibition around the world and to be carried out on a vast geography from East Europe to Russia, Central Asia and Middle East to Africa with ever-increasing investments on high speed rail technology, will be carried out in Ankara on 8-11 May 2018 and hosted by General Directorate of Turkish State Railways (TCDD).

Within the framework of the Congress under a theme of “Sharing Knowledge for Sustainable and Competitive Operations”; parallel sessions covering a great deal of fields on high speed rail, round tables and an exhibition gathering several countries and leading decision makers, professionals, competent authorities, railway institutions, infrastructure managers, railway train operators, research institutes and university representatives from all over the world, will also be held.

Save the date for the Congress to be organised in Turkey becoming acquainted with the high speed rail technology in 2009 and have unique contributions proposing added value for our country, the region and all world.
