New Delhi, India (Urban Transport News): India's railway network is recognised as one of the largest railway systems in the world under single management. The railway network is also ideal for long-distance travel and movement of bulk commodities, apart from being an energy-efficient and economic mode of conveyance and transport. Indian Railways is the preferred carrier of automobiles in the country.
The government of India has focused on investing in railway infrastructure by making investor-friendly policies. It has moved quickly to enable Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in railways to improve infrastructure for freight and high-speed trains. At present, several domestic and foreign companies are also looking to invest in Indian rail projects.
According to the recent study report issued by ICRA, the Indian Metro Rail projects will generate Rs 80,000 crore of investment opportunities for construction companies in the next five years.
In view of the above, Urban Infra Group has announced the dates of first global mega trade show - Rail & Transit Expo 2024 (RailTrans Expo 2024), a common platform for the Rail, Metro & Transportation Industry, where the rail technology providers, railway innovators, multi-model transit integrators, OEMs, Suppliers, Buyers and Investors can meet together under one roof. The RailTrans Expo 2024 is scheduled to be hosted on 29-30 August 2024 in New Delhi, India.
RailTrans Expo, the new initiative of Urban Infra Group, is aimed to provide a neutral platform for all stakeholders of railways, Metros & Transportation sectors to come under one roof for effective business networking with key people from across the globe. The RailTrans Expo will be an ideal platform for the industry to display the latest technological advancements, innovations, related products and technical services while providing an opportunity for the railway operators (i.e. Indian Railways, Metro Rail Authorities, Transit Operators etc.) to showcase their future requirements, vision and innovations.
