2018 China International Railway Conference

 for Urban & Intercity Transit

Innovation in TransportSmart Urban Transit Systems and Their Future Development

07-08 November 2018  Shanghai

Our story

Bearing witness to China’s rapid economic development and sustained urbanization, it has long been recognized that the building of efficient, integrated public transportation systems is the only way forward. By the end of 2017, both the total urban rail mileage and high-speed railway mileage under operation in China ranked first in the world, with this trend of transportation infrastructure development following suit throughout the Asia-Pacific.

China is focusing on the importance of having strong transportation capabilities, with President Xi Jinping stating last year that this is an overarching strategic priority. In seeking to build effective transportation systems, it is recognized that a global perspective is needed, whilst acknowledging national circumstances and conditions. For the railway and urban rail transit industries, the manufacturing quality of their operational components is a shining national example of China’s growing export of high-end transportation industry equipment.

During the first half of 2018, the General Office of the State Council of China issued Opinions on Guaranteeing Safe Operation of Urban Rail Transit (GBF [2018] No.13) and Opinions on Further Strengthening Urban Rail Transit Planning and Construction Management (GBF [2018] No.52), which delivered the latest policy oversight on the urban rail transit industry, including project approval, programme planning, risk control and operation management, receiving wide attention throughout the industry.

To further implement the detail of the above documents, the Ministry of Transport of China also released Urban Rail Transit Operation Management Regulations. These Regulations, adhering to the underlying principles of “people-centered, safe and reliable, convenient and efficient, economic and comfortable”, and establishing the concept of “planning construction for operation and operating services for passengers”, define policies and measures of urban rail transit operation and management. This is of great significance to further standardizing the operation and management of urban rail transit and guaranteeing operation safety, as well as coordinating relations between all stakeholders. It is an important guide to the future development of China’s rail transit industry.

With the above in mind, the Opening Forum will fully explore international and domestic industry development trends and conduct discussions around the efforts made in the improvement of manufacturing quality and the service and operational effectiveness in railway and urban rail transit. In so doing a good platform for communication and the exchange of knowledge with international counterparts will be established.
