A Word from the Organiser
Morocco is already Africa’s leading railway nation in terms of network size and traffic volumes, and will soon be the first to operate a high speed line.

The Tangier - Casablanca rail link which is set to open for service during 2018 is part of an ambitious programme of economic development in the country.
Initiated by the King of Morocco, the project will serve to accelerate the changes already underway in the Kingdom, and will fundamentally reshape Moroccan mobility habits.

The 6th edition of the International Seminar on Railway Operating Safety and Security, which will take place from 19 to 21 April 2017 in Tangier (Morocco) and will have as its overarching theme “High speed rail: the challenges of safe and secure operations”, will provide a platform via which to share experience and good practice surrounding high speed rail systems at all stages in their life cycle - from design through to construction and opening for revenue service.

The third day will take the form of a visit to the site of the first Arab-African high speed line (200 km). Running from Casablanca, Morocco’s business capital, to Tangier, the gateway to Europe, the line is currently 86% complete.
We are sure you will be interested in attending this important gathering, and will be pleased to count you and your key collaborators amongst us making a valuable contribution to proceedings.

GOALS
Drawing on existing achievements and specific examples, the seminar aims to present experience and good practice from across the world in high speed rail systems at all stages in their life cycle - from design through to construction and opening for revenue service.
