An industry briefing will be conducted next month for firms interested in participating in the tender for the assets company of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project.

The assets company will be responsible for designing, building, financing and maintaining all rolling stock and rail assets.

The briefing will be conducted by Malaysia's MyHSR Corporation - a unit under the Malaysian Ministry of Finance - and Singapore's Land Transport Authority, the two agencies announced yesterday.

The briefing is open to all "qualified entities" and will serve as a platform for MyHSR and LTA to share the project's key features, tender parameters and technical specifications.
