Infrastructure Minister of Ukraine Vladyslav Kryklii and President of the Swiss Confederation Simonetta Sommaruga discussed possible cooperation on modernization of the rolling stock of Ukrzaliznytsia JSC.

"Infrastructure Minister of Ukraine Vladyslav Kryklii held a working meeting with President of the Swiss Confederation Simonetta Sommaruga in Kyiv on July 22. The parties discussed prospects for further cooperation between the two countries in various areas, in particular in the railway industry," the press service of the Infrastructure Ministry reports.

Kryklii welcomed the bilateral cooperation between Ukraine and Switzerland in the transport sector and noted that the Ministry is looking for a strategic foreign partner to renew the rolling stock of Ukrzaliznytsia JSC. It is planned that, in cooperation with a national manufacturer, it would be able to achieve the localization of production in Ukraine by at least 40%, as well as to introduce modern integrated solutions for service and repair.

In addition, the possibility of launching a large-scale project in the capital is being considered. The Kyiv City Express project provides for the development and modernization of the region's railway infrastructure and the purchase of new rolling stock for suburban service.

The parties also discussed possible further cooperation between the two countries in the aviation and maritime industries. In addition, they raised the issues of digitalization of the transport system, introduction of electronic documents and creation of digital corridors.
