A short video was produced for the opening of the UIC General Assembly on 8th December. The first presentation took place at the UIC reception at the Automobile Club de France, place de la Concorde, on the evening of 7th December.
The three-minute film was made on behalf of UIC by the FRL production company in close cooperation with the Communications departments of UIC member railways and leading railway manufacturers. Member railways sent a selection of footage illustrating the latest railway developments in 2009 around the world, for example the inauguration of new lines, new stations, new rolling stock and some other important events relating to the railways or to UIC.
The video will be used again by UIC in 2010 to open workshops, seminars, meetings with invited groups of visitors (media, politicians, etc.). It can also be used of course by member railways for the opening of meetings or workshops focusing on international cooperation between railways.
We are particularly thankful / grateful to the UIC member railways who sent contributions for the preparation of this video.
