"Our task is to lend new impetus to Russia's development through high-tech solutions" says First Vice-President of Russian Railways


Alexander Misharin, First Vice-President of Russian Railways and Managing Director of OJSC High Speed ​​Lines, has addressed the plenary meeting of the XIII Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum "Strategy-2030. Images of Russia's Future."

In his speech, Misharin noted that one of the main areas of the Strategy to be discussed should be a balanced development of transport infrastructure. Russian Railways is already working along those lines.

"The main strategic objectives are clearly spelled out in the Russian Federation's Transport Strategy for the period to 2030. We have to ensure that the development of infrastructure is not lower than the parameters set out in this document," said Misharin.

Among the areas outlined in Strategy 2030, the Company First Vice-President emphasised increasing the availability and quality of transport and logistics services,.

"Our task is to focus on improving logistics and lending a new impetus to the country's development through the use of high-tech solutions," he said.

According to Misharin, the Strategy's priorities also include creating areas and routes which carry mainly passenger or freight traffic and the construction of high-speed highways.

"High speed rail projects can be seen as anti-crisis measures for several reasons. First, investment in infrastructure stimulates economic growth. Second, wider benefits accrue not only because of the construction itself, but also because of the agglomeration effect. Third, high speed rail is all about high-tech - new materials and superconductivity are realised in speed and people comfort. Obviously, these projects also stimulate the development of technology and create a new quality of life," said Misharin.

During the Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum, the First Vice-President Russian Railways also spoke about the state of the Moscow - Kazan High Speed Rail pilot project.

"This is the first high-speed railway line in Russia, so much is being done for the first time. The planning for the route is now underway and involves all the major design institutes in Moscow. We are planning to conduct test runs of the trains destined for this line in 2020. We expect that the Moscow - Kazan high-speed rail link will lead to the creation of more than 370,000 jobs in various sectors of the economy, generate new production and create a whole generation of young professionals," said Alexander Misharin.
