Images of opening and soundbites from ABB CEO
SOUNDBITE, Ulrich Spiesshofer, CEO, ABB (English, 35 sec):
“When 20 million people move every year into cities, they need to be transported into work, they need to be transported on the weekend – when you look at the vast amount of natural resources to be explored, rail transport is again very important. So we are already very strong today, we have powered up the Gautrain; we are powering more than 200, in fact 240, locomotives of Transnet here in South Africa; we’ve got a great relationship with our key account and our key customer Bombardier – whom we’ve just met here in South Africa – so I’m looking forward, cautiously optimistic, to a very prosperous opportunity."
