Positive balance resulting from the participation in Middle East Rail 2017

Positive profit resulting from the spanish participation in the most important railway exhibition of the region.

The Spanish Railway Association participated once again in the Middle East 2017 trade fair, from Dubai (United Arab Emirates). Aquafrisch, Arcelormittal Comercial Profiles España, Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles (CAF), Implaser, TYPSA Técnicas y Proyectos and SENER Ingeniería y Sistemas companies represented Spain, under Mafex.

The results of the exhibition were positive for the Spanish participation in the most important railway exhibition in the region. At present, the solutions of the Spanish railway industry are already implemented in the main networks, both metropolitan and medium and long distances, of the Middle East. For this reason, several players in the sector, such as Mafex, are working to strengthen the presence of these companies in the planned transport programs and the trade relations. It should be recalled that, in the GCC region, an investment of 350 billion dollars (328,000 M€) is planned for the next ten years in order to boost the railway infrastructure.

Middle East Rail has become an essential professional platform for the sector. The example is particularly focused on products and services related to engineering and construction, rolling stock, signaling, safety, communications, operations, maintenance and integration of systems. It involves the participation of government authorities, representatives of transport organizations and numerous suppliers from around the world.
