Rail+Metro China 2017 Will be Held in Shanghai This November, With a Highlight on Global Cooperation

SHANGHAI, Oct. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The 12th edition of China International Rail Transit Exhibition (Rail+Metro China 2017) will be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Center on November 21-23, 2017.

Under the guidance of China Association of Metros and strong support of the Shanghai Municipal Transportation Commission, China Academy of Transportation Sciences and Investment Promotion Bureau of Commerce, the show is organized by China International Engineering Consulting Corporation, Shanghai Shentong Metro Group and Shanghai Intex Exhibition Company.

The urbanization of China in recent times has seen large and medium cities rapidly develop their public transportation systems, to improve urban traffic conditions and reduce environmental pollution. The 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020) marks the start of China's new urbanization plan, with metropolitan areas set to further expand and traffic congestion expected to intensify to a point that strengthening market demand for urban rail transit will be prioritized even more than in past planning periods. According to the Government's approved construction plans, China's urban rail transit mileage will increase 854 km in 2017, and will reach 8,500 km by 2020, with rail transit construction and investment increasing year on year from 2017.

With the new wave of construction in public transport infrastructure now in full swing, on January 17th 2017 the State Council issued a Notice on Several Measures to Increase Openness to Foreign Investment and Encourage Foreign Investment, making it easier for foreign enterprises to enter the Chinese market. The notice will open up China's market further by supporting foreign investment in infrastructure construction through franchise models, creating a more competitive environment in the process. Also restrictions on foreign investors to the domestic market will be removed entirely in areas such as rail transit equipment manufacturing.

Rail+Metro China 2017 will cooperate with AHK/GIC Shanghai, American Rail Working Group, RusExpo and major international partners from Malaysia, Iran, Ethiopia, South Africa, Slovenia and Canada, setting national pavilions, project demonstration zones and holding project promotion events. Rail+Metro China is always dedicated to promptly conveying the most practical industry information and build an integrated trade platform. We believe the 2017's show will hit a new high from every aspect and bring together all the industry's leading figures.

The event will be on November 21st to 23rd, 2017, we look forward to your participation.
