Tokyo Metro to Help Ho Chi Minh City Run Urban Railways (News)


Manila, Dec. 13 (Jiji Press)—Tokyo Metro Co. will provide support for the Ho Chi Minh City Management Authority for Urban Railways and a planned railway operator so that urban train services are run smoothly in Vietnam's biggest business city.

Tokyo Metro will support production of manuals and provide specialty training in some fields in Japan under a project it won from the Japan International Cooperation Agency, the Japanese subway operator said Tuesday.

The assistance will be provided for five years to the end of November 2022.

Tokyo Metro gives similar support in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi, including human resources development for railway operations.

With the start of the latest project, Tokyo Metro will provide know-how in urban railway operations to the two big Vietnamese cities suffering from traffic congestion.
