The Greek railways subsidiary ERGOSE and the international section of the Russia’s RZD railways on Friday signed a memorandum of understanding for joint projects to be undertaken in Greece, Russia and third countries where the two companies are already active or may become active in the future. The agreement was signed in Moscow, in the presence of Greek Infrastructure and Transport Minister Christos Spirtzis.
The Greek minister visited Moscow at the invitation of his Russian counterpart Maksim Sokolov, following their meeting in Athens last November. Spirtzis was accompanied by ERGOSE CEO Athanasios Vourdas and had meetings with Sokolov and the RZD Vice-President Alexander Misharin.
The two delegations also reviewed bilateral relations in the transport sector, with emphasis on railways due to the possibility of prospective investments, while agreeing that close and systematic cooperation between the two sides yields mutually beneficial results.
The memorandum signed on Friday relates to activities linked to the management of projects, construction of railway infrastructure, consultancy services and cargo centre services on a bilateral and international level.
During his visit, Spirtzis was shown around the RZD facilities and took a trip on a high-speed train and the Moscow metro.
