Rail transport plays an enormously important role in Russia’s economy, accounting for 80% of total freight turnover and 43% of passenger turnover. Russia is on the verge of a major wave of investment into transport sector - the Russian government has embarked on a major restructuring program for the railway system aimed at creating a market environment in the sector, which should allow an increasing role for private sector players The restructuring and planned investment may present significant opportunities for Western equipment suppliers and system providers, who will be probably be encouraged to team with Russian partners to access the opportunities flowing from the railway investment program.
