Message by UIC Director General following the dramatic floods in the Balkan Region

  • Solidarity

Dear colleagues, Dear friends,

We are soon going to hold our General Assembly in Portoroz, marking its creation in this part of the world.

93 years during which the worldwide railway community has grown, in spite of all sorts of difficulties throughout the years.

Today some of our Members in this Balkan Region are now going through traumatic difficulties caused by exceptional flooding and natural disasters.

Through this communication I wish to express our deepest sympathy and recall our UIC values and in particular solidarity to invite all Members to bring their assistance in whatever way in order to help restore their railway system as soon as possible.
From the bottom of our heart thank you to all of you.

Jean-Pierre Loubinoux

UIC Director General
