As the Managing Director – Operations & Mainland Business of MTR Corporation Limited, I want to welcome you to Hong Kong. We are pleased to once again be the host network for Asia Pacific Rail, a highly important event to Asia Pacific’s metro and rail community. Now in its 19th year, the show continues to bring together leading rail experts from across Asia and the world to share best practices with each other and address the key challenges we are all facing.
With so much investment into rail infrastructure, both here in Hong Kong and in many cities across the world, as we move towards an increasingly smart, technology-enabled future, this event comes at an important time. We are proud to showcase some of the most forward-thinking technologies and operations & maintenance strategies that are being developed, and to explore some of Asia’s most exciting rail investment opportunities.
Asia Pacific Rail 2017 will once again feature the most exciting project updates from both metro and mainline projects across Asia Pacific. The expanded 2017 agenda will explore major issues affecting all of us across the digital railway, rolling stock, asset management, high speed rail, freight, finance & investment, power & energy, safety and more, ensuring we are truly addressing the needs of the entire rail community.
We are pleased to give our support to the 19th Asia Pacific Rail and would be delighted to see you in Hong Kong in March.
