China High Speed Railway Summit 2009

September 24, 2009
Author: Eve-Marie Morgo

The 4th annual China High-Speed Railway summit will bring together more than 200 international participants, including government authorities, railway operators, manufacturers and IT solutions providers. The major developments of high-speed rail projects in China will be presented during the event, having the chance to discuss, exchange view points and network.

 

Rail travel in Asia Pacific: a growing high-speed network 

China is a particularly attractive market as it has a rapidly growing high-speed rail network and the government has planned to invest a huge amount of money in the coming years:

  • According to China’s Mid and Long Term Network plan, China is to finish construction of its high-speed rail network linking key cities composed of four north-south lines and four east-west lines by 2020.
  • The total length is to reach 12,500km with most of the lines opening at a speed of 200km/h or above.

The event programme will cover China’s crucial projects including the Beijing – Shang High-Speed Line and the Guangzhou – Shenzhen Hong Kong Express link.

It will also focus on financial issues such as ‘creating the best way of funds infusion under the current investment upsurge’ and ‘how to drive a business forward through Public-Private partnership mode.’

Others issues discussed will be ‘Technology and innovations for tomorrow’s railway transport’ and ‘Ensuring the capacity and frequency of high-speed rail dedicated networks.’

Amadeus rail will be attending the event. Marcos Isaac, Director Travel Services Business Group, Amadeus, will be speaking about Innovation in technology for the railway industry
