The National Transport Commission is coordinating the series of historic MoC signings between rail industry manufacturers, operators and Federal and State Transport Ministers to make rail more interoperable across Australia.
The MoC signing by Siemens Mobility is another signatory of rail operators and stakeholders to harmonise rail operations in Australia. By signing this MoC, Siemens Mobility as a key player in the global rail industry, shows its commitment to support the Australian Rail Industry with interoperable solutions, like the European Train Control System. The MoC emphasizes the shared commitment of both government and industry stakeholders to create a seamless and efficient rail network in Australia. 
Raphaelle Guerineau, CEO Siemens Mobility, ANZ, stated, "Interoperability is important to support the future of rail in Australia. Siemens Mobility is happy to be part of this initiative to encourage industry and governments to collaborate. We are keen to contribute continuing to build on the work we are doing with the Digital Systems project for Transport for New South Wales."
Michael Hopkins, CEO, and Commissioner of the National Transport Commission, said, “Today’s signing of the Memorandum of Cooperation marks another step on the way to a more interoperable rail system. It supports government and industry efforts to consider interoperability when planning future investments in rail. Working together will be the catalyst that delivers an Australian rail network that operates smoothly across state borders through the use of compatible technologies and systems.”
