Hussain J. Al Nowais, Chairman of Union Railway, and Peter Ramsauer, Germany's Minister of Traffic, Building and Urban Development, met on Sunday evening to discuss areas of possible cooperation between the UAE and Germany, specifically in the rail industry. This meeting emphasised the importance of the strategic partnership between UAE and Germany and laid a foundation for future collaboration with German firms and officials.

Al Nowais briefed Ramsauer on Union Railway's plans, objectives and aspirations, highlighting the company's commitment to applying global best practices in the development and operation of the UAE's national freight and passenger railway. The Minister followed with an invitation to Al Nowais and Union Railway executives to visit Berlin to learn from Germany's rail industry experience and regulatory framework, as well as exchange ideas on best practices.

Al Nowais said German companies, including Deutsche Bahn AG, would be welcome to participate in the forthcoming tenders that Union Railway will be issuing in the coming months, in competition with other local, regional and international companies. He affirmed that Union Railway is highly committed to transparency and to providing an equal opportunity for all local and global companies to participate in the development of this landmark project.

Accompanying Al Nowais were Richard Bowker, CEO of Union Railway, and Ayman Al Makkawy, Executive Director for Corporate Affairs. The Minister was accompanied by a high-level delegation, including the German Charg D'Affaires.

Union Railway has visited several countries recently with experience in the rail industry, including China and the United States of America, and recently organised an Industry Outreach Workshop that was attended by approximately 360 local, regional and international companies. The Workshop served as a precursor to a formal process to invite proposals and tenders for the project's execution. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
