Sultanate to host meet on rail opportunities in GCC

The Ministry of Transport and Communications will host a conference on ‘Localisation of Railway Industries in GCC Countries’ on September 15 and 16.  

The first joint Gulf conference seeks to unite efforts of GCC countries to localise industries and services in the field of railway, and to highlight the goal of a sustainable development of their economies.  

The conference will highlight the manufacturing, service and training opportunities available to investors and private sector, including small and medium-sized enterprises in all GCC countries projects.  

The conference, while discussing the obstacles and challenges that the private sector could encounter in the participation in the railway sector, aims to develop policies and plans to help overcome these barriers and to stimulate private sector involvement. 

Speakers and experts in the field will take part in the conference together with decision-makers in the sector of railway and metro in the GCC countries.

The conference is expected to attract a broad attendance of companies and investment institutions from the GCC countries and the world.

The conference is a platform for entrepreneurs to meet decision makers and managers of these projects under one roof.
