To boost the defence of the interests of the Spanish railway sector, from within MAFEX we boast a presence and participate in several business and institutional forums of which we are members, such as UNIFE (Association of the European Railway Industry) or CEOE (Spanish Confederation of Business Organisations). Furthermore, we are officially acknowledged by the Secretary of State for Foreign Trade of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism as a collaborating association of the Ministry in matters of internationalisation, or by the Basque Government and SPRI as a railway cluster. We also regularly collaborate with the Ministry of Development, Renfe Railways Manager ADIF, the Foundation of the Spanish Railways, the Spanish Railway Technology Platform, ICEX Spain Export and Investment, CDTI (Centre for Industrial Technological Development and MetroTenerife), amongst others. We similarly collaborate internationally with the UITP (International Union of Public Transport) and with Alamys (the Latin American Association of Metropolitan and Underground Railways). Finally, it is noteworthy that MAFEX belongs to the AGEX Group, a federation that binds together three other industrial sectoral associations in Spain (AGRAGEX, SIDEREX and FUNDIGEX).
