Chairman Message

Dear members,

The China Hong Kong Railway Institution (CHKRI), formerly known as the China Hong Kong Permanent Way Society, has come a long way since its inception in 1998. Over the years, we have seen a growing technical base, diversifying membership, and stronger relationships with our Mainland counterparts.

For the past 25 years, the CHKRI has always been at the forefront in facilitating technical exchange and cooperation among railway professionals. CHKRI is dedicated to cultivating the future talents of the railway industry through various activities such as technical seminars, conferences, visits, and training courses.

During the pandemic in the past three years, even though we were unable to host face-to-face events, we remained resilient in adapting to the new normal, and managed to organize multiple online seminars. As normalcy resumes, CHKRI remains committed, as always, in fostering interaction and professional development among all railway practitioners in Hong Kong.

Under the “one country, two systems” framework, Hong Kong uniquely bridges the country with the world. Our society will continue to forge partnerships with national railway societies, thereby accelerating technological innovation and talent growth in the railway sector across both Hong Kong and Mainland China
