High Speed Rail (HSR) has attracted worldwide attention as an environmentally friendly mass transportation system. HSR projects have been planned or carried out in many countries, including the United States of America.
The purpose of this seminar is to demonstrate how Japan's 50 years of experience in HSR operations can contribute to the development of HSR projects in the USA, and also to enhance partnerships in the railway field between the USA and Japan.
In this seminar, leaders in the field of transportation from Japan will introduce operational experiences and measures related to safety about HSR. The topics of the seminar will also cover social and economic benefits derived from the HSR, such as regional development.
