Japanese companies interested in Argentina rail contracts

At least three Japanese companies are evaluating bids on upcoming rail contracts in Argentina, Noriteru Fukushima, Japan’s ambassador in Argentina, said.
The companies include Marubeni Corp, Mitsubishi Corp and Mitsui & Co Ltd and are particularly interested in the sale of passenger rail cars in the Buenos Aires metropolitan area. The companies could submit bids as a consortium, added Noriteru Fukushima.
Other Japanese companies are also interested in bidding on $1.6 billion in improvements to a freight rail line connecting the Mendoza wine region and the grains belt to eastern ports.
