Rail Transit Industry International Summit China (Zhuzhou) 2016


The Rail Transit Industry International Summit China (Zhuzhou) 2016 was held in Zhuzhou from Nov. 26 to 27, 2016.


Co-organized by the CRRC Corporation and the People’s Government of Zhuzhou City, the summit was aimed at pushing forward expansion of rail transit industry and further elevating the reputation, influence, and competitiveness of Zhuzhou in the global rail transportation industry. Based on Zhuzhou's characteristics, the global vision built, and the theme on "integration, innovation, and win-win achievements", the summit was dedicated to bringing together global industrial wisdom and creating an important platform for rail transportation industry clusters to cooperate and communicate.



The Rail Transit Industry International Summit China (Zhuzhou) 2016 concluded on November 27. At the concluding discussion, academicians focused on how to develop Zhuzhou rail transit industrial cluster, based on Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan integration.


Former Railways Minister and academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE) Fu Zhihuan, urged Zhuzhou to take advantages of the national and global rail transit boom, fuel its rail transit industry progress, and speed up construction of a rail transit-centered city. Zhuzhou is expected to be a competitive and influential world center for electric traction, and also, the world’s rail transit capital.


“We need to develop green and intelligent rail transit technology, in addition to pursuing high-speed and heavy-load results”, said Liu Youmei, academician of the CAE and the expertise committee director of CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co., Ltd. Chang-Zhu-Tan area would be built into a “Global Rail Transit Museum”, with Tianxin as the core to be a “Global Rail Transit Wonderland”, so as to make the rail transit industry a glorious symbol of Zhuzhou in the global arena.


Zhuzhou has four CRRC subsidiaries, namely Zhuzhou Locomotive, Zhuzhou Institute, Zhuzhou Electric, and CRRC Investment Holding, and more than 300 rail transit equipment manufactures. A national key laboratory on electric traction and control and other 22 provincial or above level institutions technologically support research and development. A complete industrial chain integrating product development, manufacturing, after service, and logistics has taken shape. Zhuzhou as a No.1 supplier of electronic locomotives and relevant products in global market, have entered into over 70 countries and regions.
