Our organisation

Since September 2014, AGIFI has brought together concession and partnership agreement holders that work with public authorities to modernise and develop France’s national rail network. The Association contributes to national discussions about the railway sector. We take positions in public debates on regulatory, political, and economic issues that affect us.
