About the event

COVID-19: Control and Beyond – Experience Sharing from China

The UITP Academy is organising a series of webinars in the framework of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. They aim to assist public transport companies in tailoring their business continuity plans.

Now that the lockdowns are gradually being lifted in many countries, we are seeing that while some have resumed usage, the estrangement towards using mass transit services has continued to a certain extent.

Given that China was the first country to impose strict lockdown measures as well as the first to lift them, the experience in China could help members in other part of the world to understand the impact of the measures that have been implemented and the challenges that lie ahead of the “new normal”.

UITP members in China will share in this webinar the following topics:

  • COVID-19 control and monitoring plan
  • Communication mechanism – internal and external
  • Planning of the new normal passenger services
  • HR management and manpower contingency plan
  • Impact to business and revenue
  • Passenger education
  • Passenger flow recovery situation
  • Main practices in response to COVID-19 and post COVID-19 considerations
  • Post-Coronavirus technology trends
  • Strategies to regain passengers’ confidence

What will be presented and who are our speakers?

  • Joe Ma,Deputy General Manager & Chief Financial Officer, Shenzhen Bus Group
  • Ronnie Tong,Deputy General Manager, MTR Beijing
  • Luo Huarong, Deputy Director of Railway Transport Division, Shanghai Municipal Transportation Commission (to be confirmed)
  • Sue Chan, Head of UITP Asia-Pacific (Moderator)

This (max) 90 minutes webinar in English is free of charge. Participants will be able to access the recording of the webinar afterwards in MyLibrary.

When will it take place?

Wednesday, 19th August 2020 at 08.00 Central European Summer Time (CEST, Brussels time and 14:00 China time)
