One Belt, One Road - Building an integrated rail network across Europe and Asia

China’s OBOR strategy offers extraordinary opportunities for all 60 countries that it will pass through, and of course for rail and freight businesses. The creation of the six planned economic corridors will open up more economic and efficient trade routes and the creation of new free trade zones, such as the Fujian FTZ, offering their own incentives to drive business. Join us as we explore the status of this ambitious project and identify the upcoming opportunities for the rail industry
