New projects, new opportunities and blueprint for the development of high-profile railway projects, including High-Speed Rail (HSR), Mass Rail Transit (MRT) and Light Rail Transit (LRT) projects across Asia Pacific, Africa, Middle East, Europe and the region, including potential rail projects to be implemented under China’s Belt and Road Initiative that will set the momentum for the stakeholders, policy makers and industry players to develop a framework to take stock and keep abreast on guidelines to evaluate progress, with discussion on improving the reliability of HSR, MRT and LRT systems while successfully planning for network expansion, all this is geared to provide an opportunity for collaboration and partnership for a successful implementation of the proposed rail projects

Thailand-World Rail Expansion Conference 2020 generates and consolidates opinions towards creating the necessary information that is critical to fine tune and close the gap between aspects of planning/development and market reality facing stakeholders of rail projects, from pre-feasibility study stage, to implementation and delivery of the proposed projects, including improving the reliability of HSR, MRT and LRT systems while successfully planning for network expansion across Asia Pacific, Africa, Middle East, Europe and the region, as well as rail projects under China’s Belt and Road Initiative. The conference will review blueprint for the development of high-profile railway projects including rail expansion master plan that will cost Thailand some US$50 billion to realize Thailand’s rail projects from now till 2036, including Thailand’s first HSR project, scheduled for completion by 2023, valued at US$7.2 billion. Across in Vietnam, discussion will feature latest update on Vietnam’s North-South HSR project that will offer plenty of opportunities for industry players to participate in this challenging project which includes the implementation of urban planning and redevelopment projects along the routes, valued at US$56 billion. In addition, discussion includes current progress to keep the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR project on track, towards meeting new challenges once the project resume construction in mid-2020. Across in Indonesia, with Jakarta’s flagship MRT project proven successful, there is plan for additional MRT lines in Jakarta, for a total of 230 kilometers MRT lines, as well as Light Rail Transit (LRT) lines to be realized. With the prospect of relocating the Indonesian capital city from Jakarta to East Kalimantan on Borneo, slated to begin in 2023, this will translate into spin-off effect on new opportunities for rail infrastructure projects, as part of urban redevelopment projects in the new capital city. Potential rail projects to be implemented under China’s Belt and Road Initiative will be discussed, including progress on Thailand-Chinese high-speed rail project. The Conference is geared towards achieving a framework for stakeholders and policy makers in the midst of rail network expansion to take stock and review critical success factors as well as keep abreast on guidelines to evaluate progress, while for industry players to secure an opportunity to connect with the stakeholders, towards greater collaboration for a successful implementation and delivery of the proposed projects.
