The event spotlighted the weight of the railway sector in the world and the fortitude of its industry.
The Railway Museum hosted, on October 31, the act ‘Spanish companies, at the fore- front of state-of-the-art railways’. An event in which the Minister of Public Works, Íñigo de la Serna, and the High Commissioner of the Government for Marca España, Carlos Espinosa de los Monteros, participated. The occasion served to present a promotional video of Marca España focused on the strength of Spanish industry in this sector. Furthermore, a new brochure was presented to publicise the flagship projects in the world in which firms from our country are involved in. The event brought together executives from companies and institutions in the world of transport, representatives of international investment funds, as well as ambassadors and the diplomatic corps of countries interested in infrastructure projects. Alongside them, members of the main associations such as Mafex.
The information material presented highlights Spain’s global leadership in the entire railway value chain: design, civil works, signage, safe management of rail traffic, supply of rolling stock, operation and maintenance. In addition, it underlines a highly competitive, highly profes- sional and highly integrated industrial fabric. This strength has made it possible for the industry to lead the most outstanding railway projects throughout the world, with a pre- sence in more than ninety countries spread over five continents.
