BE Summit launches GCC Future Rail Summit
Until recently the Gulf region had one of the lowest density rail networks in the world, with most passengers and freight moving around by road, air or sea. Railway development in the Arabian Peninsula and the Gulf has been overlooked because of cheap fuel prices ensured.
Only now is MENA emerging as one of the fastest growing rail markets in the world. The growth of rail is seen as a major step in transforming economic development and trade.
The highest growth rates are predicted in the GCC countries, which have ambitious plans to develop pan-Gulf railway grid which would link to the rest of the Middle East and ultimately via Turkey to Europe, and also potentially to Central Asia.
The region’s major economies have each earmarked dozens of billions of dollars for infrastructure projects .High-speed passenger rail services are planned in Morocco and Iran also Egypt, the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, among others.
Key Topics of the event - Construction & Engineering, rail Technology ,IT for Rail, revenue management,rack Maintenance.
Some of our Prime Speakers for the event are from, Egyptian Railway Maintenance & Service Co. , Algerian Embassy in the UAE , Saudi Railway Company (SAR), Saudi Arabia , Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) , Tehran Urban & Suburban Railway Company.
Mr. Michael Francis CEO of BE Summits had a few words to share about the event “ Gulf region is going through a renaissance in manufacturing, with new railway lines, metros and power plans springing up all across the region so it is the new hot spot to invest and the new era business source. “
Sounds exciting !!!
