In her new role Fang will continue to provide leadership and strategic direction to support Alstom’s growth in twelve major markets of the Asia Pacific region: India, Australia, China, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Taiwan, Korea and the Philippines.

Fang said:

“Demand for rail transport continues to grow year by year in the Asia Pacific region. Increased infrastructure development and government budget allocation, as well as the ongoing and upcoming projects due to its rapid urban urbanisation, has positioned the Asia Pacific region as the largest and fastest-growing market in the transportation sector. Consequently, improved transport efficiency and connectivity are also fundamental to enhancing economic integration. Alstom is firmly committed to offering customers a comprehensive portfolio of its state-of-the-art transport solutions, exceptional services and a solid support network.”

Her appointment as an SVP also gives Fang a seat on Alstom’s Executive Committee where she will report directly to Henri Poupart-Lafarge, the company’s chairman & CEO.
