1st UIC Conference on Natural Disaster Management of Railway Systems (Taipei, 14 – 16 May 2014)

Following the previous issue of UIC eNews dealing with the 1st International Conference on Natural Disaster Management for Railway Systems jointly organised by UIC and Taiwan High Speed Rail THSRC last week in Taipei, we are very pleased to bring you back pictures of this successful event.

This conference, dedicated to the management of natural disasters, an issue with particular relevance for member railways in Asia and a concern in many other regions of the world, brought together 200 participants representing 15 countries and all parts of the world (Asia, Australia, Russia, Japan, Korea, India, China, as well as from Europe such as France and the Middle-East such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia, and an audience through the web on the UIC internet, with 100 participants connected and following the conference live).

UIC takes this opportunity to thank once again the THSRC team which made this event a great success.
