Of all the areas of the world which our news team cover, there can be nowhere as lively and focussed on rail and metro as those countries within Southeast Asia. This ASEAN region, consisting of ten countries with a combined population of approximately 625 million people (8.8% of the world’s total) and a combined GDP of an estimated US$2.6 trillion is an area of significant economic potential. But with this expansion comes increasing pressure on existing infrastructure, natural resources, and the environment.
A solution to both ensuring continued growth and easing the pressure on existing infrastructure and the environment is the development of public transport networks. As a result ASEAN rail projects, ASEAN metro developments and planning changes are being rolled out across the region and we are proud to share the latest details and future trends in both this brand new free e-book and in offering free passes to attend SmartRail Asia Congress & Expo, in Bangkok Thailand, 25-27 November 2015. It’s an event not to be missed, further details are found within the e-book.
