Dear ladies and gentlemen!

On behalf of the National Company 'Kazakhstan temir zholy' we are glad to welcome the participants and guests of Tranzit-Kazakhstan 2016 International Exhibition.

Certainly, an annual exhibition "Transit- Kazakhstan" has become a tradition for the entire transport sector of Kazakhstan, CIS and Baltic countries.

The 100 specific steps State program defines steps for Kazakhstan integration into international transport and communication flow and creation of a multimodal transport Eurasian transcontinental corridor. In this regard the establishment of infrastructure in compliance with the international transportation requirements is of tremendous value for our state.

The new operating model of JSC "NC "KTZh" corresponds to the main directions of railway reform.

The main step of the reform is the organizational separation of transport activities and infrastructure for the formation of market-oriented service of freight and multimodal transport, competitive on the global market. In this regard, the transportation activity was transfered in July of this year to the Freight carrier - JSC "KTZh - Cargo transportation". The task of the Freight carrier is an attraction of load volumes both from traditional and new market segments.

In terms of internal and external competition special attention is paid to increase of transit potential of the Republic. The source of Company's growth is in transit containerized cargo transportation between the major economic centers of the Eurasian continent, and multimodal transportation in all kinds of directions. The number of container trains passing through the territory of Kazakhstan in China-Europe-China direction is growing. The number of containerized cargo transportation is growing among the transcontinental transportation, first of all due to reoriented cargo flow from oversea shipment to railway transport. Traffic along the North-South and TRASECA international corridors is dynamically growing.

In today's very challenging market conditions the successful interaction between the transportation market participants is of strategic importance. The company is working on a daily basis to increase the competitiveness of Kazakhstan transportation system, to improve its efficiency and availability to operate successfully in the global market of transport services.

In this regard I am sure, that Tranzit-Kazakhstan Exhibition will promote high quality transportation services, implementation of advanced transportation and logistics technologies, further attraction of investments into transport infrastructure.

I wish all participants, guests and organizers efficient work, fruitful meetings, new and reliable partners!
