The delegation had a meeting with Cesar Dockweiler the CEO Mi Teleferico company and his senior management at their headquarters.
He shared his experience with the delegation and elaborated on the various challenges he encountered during the execution of the project and how these challenges were addressed by support of the government and other stakeholders like citizens, environmentalists, transport service providers and other pressure groups.
Mr Dockweiler also assured support of Mi Teleferico and the Bolivian government for implementing similar solutions in Himachal Pradesh.
The delegation also visited the Doppelmayr country office and had detailed interaction with experts. During the discussions, the experts from Doppelmayr suggested solutions to mobility problems of mountainous regions.
The ropeway system, if implemented, can solve not only the mobility problems being faced in cities like Shimla, Dharamshala and Manali but also provide robust and eco-friendly connectivity solutions in rural areas and tourist destinations, the statement added.
