SHANGHAI, China – The grand gathering of the rail transit industry, Rail+Metro China 2016, is to be held in the Shanghai New International Expo Center from June 14 to 16, 2016.
In recent years, the impressive development of China’s railway transit and urban mass transit industries have attracted worldwide attention. China is now the world’s largest railway market, and with the greatly improved capability of domestic equipment production and the ongoing implementation of the “One Belt, One Road” national strategy, Chinese companies’ export demand has never been greater. About 100 cities in China started their planning for future urban mass transit construction at the end of 2015.
Rail+Metro China 2016 is a well-established annual industry trade show and renowned conference event in China, offering an all encompassing showcase for technological innovation that covers every aspect of the rail supply market, including railway vehicles, subassemblies and components, power and traction systems, signal, communication, IT system, railway infrastructure, services, consulting and more.
