HSR Asia 2018 will track the rapid development of the growth and expansion of the high-speed railway system network and will offer information and analysis of the Asia Pacific rail market, covering the current situation, new developments planned, key trends, problems, and opportunities. The 2-day international summit will focus on high-speed railway development and rail construction with innovative technology, communications, and signaling, effective operations, financing and options models, cybersecurity, enhanced and improved capacity, charging fees and integration of network, all while offering an integrated transport system that is sustainable, within costs and on time.
In the current global economic recession, the rail industry continues to offer long-term growth potential for the main players, making the Asia-Pacific region one of the most interesting markets in the world for investment and rail development.
30% of global rail investment is now concentrated in the Asia Pacific and it is better than Kuala Lumpur to host HSR Asia 2018 in September 2018. The key factors driving investment in railways are economic growth, urbanization, and growth of the population.
Globally, high-speed rail projects are progressing rapidly, with 2018 promising to bring more investment, opportunities, and challenges to the high-speed rail market.
