The General Directorate of Turkish Railways (TCDD) plans to invest over 10 billion USD in the production of rolling stock and rail transport-related projects in the years of 2013 - 2015. A total amount of 45 billion USD are projected to be spent on  high-speed lines, conventional lines, electrification and signalization, rolling stock and track renovations until 2023.


Moreover, Liberalization of the Turkish Railway Transportation Law, passed on May 1, 2013 will permit public & private legal entities and firms to build their own railway infrastructure and operate them as well as manage trains on the national railway network.


Turkey Railway Infrastructure & Rolling Stock Summit will feature the most prominent industry leaders and government officials from across the region providing informative and inspiring discussions pertaining to region's current needs and their ambitious future. Turkey welcomes the international community to join this forum to discover new strategies and technologies that can assist in building a state-of-the-art railway infrastructure and modernization of the rolling stock fleet.
