Thank you to those who attended this event.


Dear MDBC members,

As Malaysia sets its sights to fulfilling its high income nation agenda by 2020, the increase in transportation connectivity has become a key priority with new lines being mapped out and new projects being constructed for its dynamic urban development.  These include some high profile projects that will dramatically alter the landscape of travel, such as the Mass Rapid Transit lines, Double Tracking Railway, and of course, the KL – SG High Speed Rail.

As the nation’s most prolific and largest mobility undertaking across 2 countries, the High Speed Rail involves cross – border operations to be unified by a single standard signaling system.  All across Europe, in Italy, Spain, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, and France, where High Speed Railways are present, open European technology systems like the European Railway Traffic Management System (ERTMS) has been a widely accepted standard of excellence, deployed for its ability to enhance complex, cross border train operations and in digitalizing services.  Such is the advent of digitialization which has been instrumental to enabling smart solutions that cater to increasing passengers demand for efficiency, safety, and comfort, a growing population, and in keeping up with changing transportation times that call for cost effective control and monitoring of operations.
