Bombardier plans to invest in Turkey’s high-speed rail

The head of Canadian train maker Bombardier said on Dec. 23 that his company would invest in Turkey’s high-speed rail network construction.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency in Berlin, Bombardier head Laurent Troger said Turkey was one of the world’s most important railway markets as it connects Europe and the Middle East.

As Turkey invests in a high-speed railway network to connect the Turkish capital Ankarawith other provinces, Bombardier would participate by investing in a manufacturing plant and maintenance center in the country, Troger said.

 “The modernization process is proceeding very fast and government’s commitment of $45 billion investment to the railway sector boosts this importance to further levels,” said Troger, who on Dec. 9 was named president of the company.
