Posted: 11 December 2018 | | No comments yet

Joan Amorós, President of FERRMED, shares the business-oriented approach to railway development on the Trans-Eurasian One Belt One Road.


FERRMED welcomes the content of the Joint Statement of the 20th EU-China Summit agreed in Beijing in July 2018 and fully agrees on the EU-China Connectivity Platform initiative.

Held in Brussels on 21-22 November 2018, the FERRMED conference Second Eurasian Connectivity and Industrial Cooperation Forum took place in connection with the 2018 Annual Meeting of FERRMED and the Industry Cooperation Forum for Asia-Europe Interconnection, held in Zhengzhou in July 2018 and co-organised with the People’s Government of Zhengzhou. These events will continue to take place twice a year (one in Europe and one in China) with the aim to further develop guidelines and promote the corresponding actions for an effective business approach in achieving the goals of China’s Belt and Road Initiative and the European Union’s own policy on sustainable connectivity between Europe and Asia.

FERRMED has pursued shared initiatives such as the signing of the Cooperation Agreement between Zhengzhou and FERRMED, and the Memorandum of Cooperation between the Coordinating Council on Trans-Siberian Transportation (CCTT) and FERRMED. Talks on similar agreements with other international associations are underway. These, and the launch of the FERRMED Multisectoral Working Groups (FMWGs) with a Eurasian outlook, are intended to better pursue the aforementioned aims and to enhance our global outreach.
