The 60th UITP World Congress and Exhibition Geneva 2013

The 60th World Congress and Exhibition of UITP (International Association of Public Transport) was held for three days from 27 to 29 May in Geneva, Switzerland, and attracted many participants and visitors. Four member companies of Japan Overseas Rolling Stock Association (JORSA), together with the municipal government of Toyama City, collaborated in mounting an exhibit. The four companies were Kinki Sharyo Co., Ltd., Nippon Signal Co., Ltd., Kyosan Electric Manufacturing Co., Ltd. and Nippon Sharyo, Ltd.

In addition to representation from JORSA members, four other companies from Japan mounted their own joint exhibit. These were East Japan Railway Company, Tokyo Metro Co., Ltd., Japan International Consultants for Transportation Co., Ltd., and Japan Transport Engineering Company.

During the Congress, the mayor of Toyama spoke about the city’s current “Compact City” strategies. JORSA helped the city promote its transit-friendly approach by providing part of its stand for Toyama’s displays, which included a model of its Light Rail Transit (LRT) vehicles.
