Russian Railways is considering the possibility of participating in the implementation of projects to develop Brazil's transport infrastructure, including on the terms of a possible concession.
The development of transport infrastructure and, in particular, of Brazil's railways, will help to accelerate economic growth, especially in the agricultural sector, improve the availability of transport for shippers and reduce logistics costs, thus creating favourable conditions for export growth.
The RZD Holding is carrying out a comprehensive study of a project to reconstruct and develop Cuba's railway infrastructure.
The work is being carried out in accordance with a Road Map for the preparation of the Contract for the performance of the work, the provision of services and the supply of construction, track equipment, equipment and materials to the Republic of Cuba, which was signed between Russian Railways and the Union of Railways of Cuba on 8 December 2016.
A number of protocols to the Road Map have been signed which specify the scope of the work and the supplies of machinery, equipment and materials.
Work is under way to harmonise other aspects of the project.
