The article discusses various opportunities in India for international suppliers in the rail sector. According to the Planning Commission of India, the country's rail sector now requires over 50 billion of investment, and this offers many opportunities to international firms , particularly in terms of technology transfer or public-private partnership (PPP). India's rapid urbanisation and the growth of many cities also offers considerable opportunities for private investors.
