Perez Miranda and Bertrand Minary, the new UIC coordinator, supported by the region’s former coordinator Marc Guigon.

The meeting was pleased to welcome PeruRail as a special guest.

The main topics discussed during the meeting were the Safety task force, the Security task force, the Sustainability platform, the Infrastructure group, the Standardisation policy of UIC, with the virtual attendance of its chairwoman Asako Togari and the development of vision 2030 for the region.

In this region a major trend is the revitalisation of old lines, with major projects in every country. Some spectacular examples were given by Empresa de los Ferrocarriles del Estado - Grupo EFE (Chile), Agencia Nacional de Infraestructura (ANI) (Columbia) and Ferrocarriles Argentinos Sociedad del Estado (FASE, Argentina).
