  • (1888PressRelease) February 07, 2014 - Latin American countries have been putting a lot of effort for a more balanced transport matrix with the focus on investments, in both freight and passengers rail networks, to achieve an advantage over the lesser cost of shipping goods in and out of their ports. With China and Britain extending their support through exchange of technology know-how and investments for the upcoming rail projects, the region will see major metamorphosis in its transport sector. A two day conference on rail opportunities across Latin America to be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil on 18 - 19 March 2014, will focus on the current status of the ongoing projects and hear about the latest technologies being implemented in railway systems from industry experts.

Representatives from the Ministry of Transport of Uruguay and Ecuador will discuss the current scenario in their respective countries. The summit will also cover rail infrastructure investment plans in Mexico and Paraguay by explaining the right equation for procuring the best rail technology at the right cost and quality.
