Dear Members and Partners,

As you all know, the Covid-19 now affects all regions of the world.

Considering this worldwide situation, it has been decided to postpone the UIC world Congress on High Speed Rail scheduled from 30 June to 3 July 2020 in Beijing to a date yet to be defined.

I would like to take this opportunity to underline all the efforts already made to organise this UIC major event and all the fruitful synergies developed between the UIC and China Railways and CARS teams.

I also renew my confidence in all the speakers, participants, exhibitors and sponsors who had already been contacted.

More information will be sent to you in the future about another date. Concerning the UIC General Assembly that was forecast in Beijing concomitantly with the High Speed Congress, it will take place the same week in Paris. Precise details of the organisation and date will be defined in the coming week.

I look forward to welcoming you to this event in the future.

With my best regards,
François Davenne
