Russian railway giant plans Bahrain ventures
 
Manama: One of the world's biggest railway and infrastructure developer companies has established its headquarters in Bahrain

The Russian Railways Public Joint Stock Company sent a delegation on a two-day visit to Bahrain at the invitation of GR Group managing director and CEO Salman Yaqoob Kahraman Sheiba. The firm operates as RZD agent in Bahrain.

The RZD delegation, led by two vice-presidents Bobreshov Alexander and Oleg Tony aimed at promoting bilateral trade and investment co-operation. It also sought to explore projects in both Bahrain and the other GCC countries.

Established 170 years ago, RZD ranks among the giant railway firms in the world. The government-owned RZD transports an overall 1.5 billion passengers and 1.8bn tonnes of merchandise inside Russia, employing 1.5 million workers,

RZD is known for its edge and expertise in both infrastructure development and railway mega projects. It boasts up to 22 institutes specialised in studying projects, in addition to 19 other affiliate construction companies.

The company also boasts a chain of institutes specialised in forming engineers, railways and construction experts, qualified in turn-key mega projects.

Developing transportation infrastructure in the world tops the company's strategic objectives, particularly in the GCC countries and the Middle East. The company is also bidding for a string of tenders in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Algeria and Jordan.

The Russian delegation also featured representatives from the Millennium Bank and Civilisation Forum officials. RZD President Vladimir Yakunin also presides over the forum, launched four years ago to promote international relations and seek peaceful settlements to conflicts plaguing the world.

The conference, regularly convened in Rhodes, a Greek island, attracts up to 500 participants representing 50 states. It awards medals to leading personalities in recognition of their relentless efforts to promote dialogue between civilisations. Yemeni President Ali Abdulla Saleh and King Abdullah of Jordan were the laureates for 2004 and 2006 respectively.

Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs President Shaikh Abdulla bin Khalid Al Khalifa received the delegation which submitted an invitation to attend the forthcoming conference later this year. They also discussed the possibility of holding the same event in Bahrain next year.

The delegation also held a series of meetings with ministry officials who reiterated their keenness to promote bilateral co-operation and involve Russia in key local transport projects

RZD and Millennium Bank also plan to open a joint representative office in Bahrain. Analytical studies of potential projects in Bahrain will also be conducted.
