The FRA maintains relationships with foreign government owned and operated railways and international railroad organizations to foster international research and development in the passenger and freight rail industries. These international activities allow the FRA to develop railroad related cooperative agreements amongst various countries and facilitate communication between foreign passenger and freight railroad organizations and U.S. rail related industries.
