Speech by Jean-Pierre Loubinoux at MEDEF International

  • Latin America

On 27 January, UIC Director-General Jean-Pierre Loubinoux met all the Latin American Ambassadors present at the annual meeting hosted by MEDEF International, of which he is Chairman of the France-Argentina Committee.

During the meeting Mr Loubinoux raised a number of points linked to railway sector development. In particular, he highlighted that against a backdrop of world economic growth and growing urban congestion, there is an increasing need for greater mobility among goods and people and a need to overcome the structural weaknesses of transport infrastructure. He added that as transport links develop across Latin America, it is important to improve current infrastructure and build new corridors across the continent as part of a Latin American vision for transport.
