Italferr represents FS Italiane Group at the “XIX World Festival of Youth and Students”

The highest-ranking officials of the Russian Federation present at the Festival.

The XIX World Festival of Youth and Students, attended by about 25,000 young students and workers from over 180 countries, was held in Sochi, Russia, to share innovative ideas and proposals for the future.

This unique event received a huge media coverage, with the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin presiding over both the opening ceremony of the Festival and the closing event.

Among the 12 sections of the Festival there was also a forum on the “Global Railway Network: bringing the future closer, organised by JSC Russian Railways, attended by FS Italiane Group and thanks to the participation of Italferr's Proposal Manager for the Middle East and Asia Area, selected from among 500 professionals from all over the world, that commented on his experience with the following words“It was an honour to represent the Group in this event and to speak in front of the highest-ranking officials of the Russian Federation. I hope this will be considered a success for all railwaymen. We are always proud of being part of such a strong, renowned, appreciated and respected Group, worldwide. Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane is a model to be followed, a benchmark for everyone. The Chinese Railways, for example, present with a huge delegation, requested a special meeting with us to get to know us better”.
Despite different languages, approaches and mentalities, the objective of the forum was to realise a single multimodal railway network, for both freight and passengers.
