January 16 (Wednesday) at 14:30 at the Ukrainian Institute for the future (n. Kyiv, vul. Oles Gonchar) will be a presentation of the study «is there a future for railway transport of Ukraine» from the Ukrainian experts of the Institute for the future.
Subject to export-oriented development model, rail transport is an important condition for economic growth. Ukraine’s economy is a large part of foreign exchange earnings comes from exports of agricultural products, ores, metal products. Without rail transportation, the transportation process of products will be much more expensive and inconvenient. GDP growth generates additional demand for freight transport. And if rail transport is not able to provide it, it will mean the impossibility for business to transport goods and the gradual shift towards other modes of transport in the future. Further necessary increase in tariffs for rail freight will reduce the attractiveness of rail transport and reorientation of cargo on road and river transport until 2030.
A study of the main challenges for railway transportation (in the field of modernization of infrastructure, freight and passenger traffic, tariffs, staff, etc.). up to 2030, and assessing their consequences for the economy of Ukraine. The biggest challenge is considered to be a critical deterioration of infrastructure, which by 2025 could be a massive problem for the entire state and the «tipping point» for rail transport.
Research shows UIF: challenges for railway transportation would directly affect the Ukrainian economy and businesses by 2030.
