Future is railway. As the national income increases, urbanization expands and awareness on climate change becomes greater, the demand for railway will continue to grow. Given this prospect, it is only timely to start active discussions how to advance the railway industry as a future growth engine. Your presence and interest in the GSRC will mark the beginning of the journey.
