In fact, the timing of this partnership is spot-on, as the Indian Railways is looking at modernizing and expanding its infrastructure: this platform will provide a constant and daily update on the market opportunities for the Italian companies.” states Mr. Claudio Maffioletti, Secretary General, The Indo-Italian Chamber.
