ZAO «Firma TVEMA» received the status of the affiliated enterprise of the Organisation for Co-operation between Railways (OSJD). This decision was made on the XXIX meeting of the Conference of Railway General Directors of OSJD which took place in April of this year in the capital of DPRK, Pyongyang.

Apart from official structures, independent companies related to railway sector which conform to the requirements of the Organization can participate in OSJD activities as affiliated enterprises.
  

The status of OSJD affiliated enterprise reveals new prospects for TVEMA in the field of international co-operation.
