For our 2017 exhibition, we attribute a greater surge in participation to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, as the new organizer and the concurrent hosting of large-scale railway international conferences. Thanks to the active promotion by central governments, the exhibition will showcase outstanding content of which we have high expectations.
