The UIC welcomes FASE as a new member of the Latin American Region as approved during the General Assembly on 7 July 2023.

Ferrocarriles Argentinos Sociedad del Estado (FASE) is the holding company that leads the group of all the state railway companies, which are Trenes Argentinos Cargas (freight operations); Trenes Argentinos Operaciones (passenger operations); Trenes Argentinos Infraestructura (infrastructure) and Trenes Argentinos Capital Humano (human resources).

Its main objective is to articulate the state companies, the private companies, private actors, unions and users of the railway system, being the direct link to the Argentinian Ministry of Transport.

FASE was created after the approval of Law 27.132 in 2015, in order to set priorities in the passenger and freight railways reactivation policy, the renovation and improvement of the railway infrastructure and the incorporation of technologies and services that contribute to the modernisation and efficiency of the public rail transport system, pledging to guarantee the integration of the national territory, the country’s connectivity and the development of regional economies with social equity and employment creation.

Its purposes include providing solutions for the entire railway system, either from the operational and logistical point of view through Working Groups, or by the development of science and technology from the National Centre for the Development of Railway Innovation (CENADIF).
