Polish ministry of infrastructure shares plans at RailFreight Summit
Do you want to know what the Polish government has on the shelves for the rail freight industry? If you are at the RailFreight Summit Poland this week, you will be updates by no-one less than Jakub Kapturzak, Deputy Director of the Railway Department at the Ministry of Infrastructure in Poland.
After an opening word by the Dutch Ambassador to Poland Daphne Bergsma, Kapturzak will address the audience with a 20-minute presentation. Will the government finance the modernisation of Malaszewicze? Which projects is it investing in this year? And how will this affect the cross-border railway lines to the rest of Europe, and towards Asia?
Join us on 19 & 20 April for the RailFreight Summit Poland in Warsaw.
A well-known speaker
Kapturzak spoke at the RailFreight Summit Poland before, when it was hosted in Gdansk in 2019. His presentation was so well received, that the audience was willing to sacrifice much of its lunch break to hear more. The infrastructure upgrades are of great importance to the rail freight industry, not only in Poland but for all the industry at large, as Poland is on many corridors in Europe.
Poland is also a crucial country on the New Silk Road. In 2019 Kapturzak presented six main railway projects to be implemented close to the Polish-Belarusian border, to boost the capacity of transshipment area Malaszewicze. The projected completion year was 2023, but this is no longer feasible. Will Kapturzak be able to share an updated version of this plan?
