Railways
Since the Tohoku Earthquake 2011 still much remains to be rebuilt and progress is slow. The EBC Railway Committee believes that in rural areas the train station plays a vital role and an increased focus on a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system will weaken communications and communities alike. The EBC, with its particular expertise in urban planning and rail technology, believes that a Light Rail Transit (LRT) system should be introduced.

Moreover, the EBC believes that the EU-Japan FTA/EPA should enable Japan to work jointly with Europe to promote open integrated systems built on harmonised standards. Furthermore under the FTA/EPA, test data from internationally recognised certification bodies should be accepted without further delay and references from Europe should be fully recognised and accepted.
