President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky praised the Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation between Ukrzaliznytsia (Ukrainian railways) and the Swiss company Stadler on May 7, following talks with representatives of the Office of the President of Ukraine, the Ministry of Strategic Industries and the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine.


Stadler, one of the world’s leading rolling stock manufacturers, will be looking for a site for the construction of a plant for the production of suburban trains and city trams. The next steps will be technology transfer and employee training to ensure product quality that meets the company’s standards.

This plant will focus on domestic Ukrainian consumers, participation in tenders, as well as on the export of products to other countries, as it was agreed at a meeting between Zelensky and Peter Christoph Spuhler, President of the Board of Directors of Stadler CIS AG, and Alexander Luft, CEO of Stadler CIS AG.

We fully support such investments in our country. Ukraine is interested in such cooperation, and we discussed such opportunities during the official visit of the President of the Swiss Confederation to Ukraine.

Volodymyr Zelensky

Cooperation with Stadler will also contribute to the implementation of the project of high-quality suburban railway service City Express, the first stage of which is to be implemented in Kyiv, Dnipro and Kharkov, the message reads.
