After years of rapid development, a relatively mature industrial chain has been shaped in China's urban rail transit industry, with market opportunities gradually moving closer to leading enterprises. An increasing number of companies seek to cooperate with the capital market to build their own advantages in market size, cost control and technology R&D through capital assistance, thus promoting industry integration and upgrading for the realization of their own development. In the future, industrial investment will play an increasingly important role in creating urban rail ecology and promoting industrial integration and upgrading. BIITT is an industrial group company integrating investment and financing, technology R&D, intelligent rail transit construction, operation, and maintenance. In the future, BIITT will bring its capital advantages into full play to contribute to the construction and upgrading of rail transit ecology.
