With the lockdown continuing, and international travel difficult, the Railway Industry Association and the UK’s Department for International Trade are partnering to launch their first ever joint virtual UK rail trade mission, to Canada.
The mission will see delegates take part in a programme of activities over 1 to 12 February 2021 with key players across the Canadian rail sector.
The first week will involve virtual roundtables and presentations over a number of days, with week two containing one-to-one meetings where mission delegates will be able to speak directly to Canadian stakeholders about collaboration opportunities.
Neil Walker, Exports Director at the Railway Industry Association (RIA), said: “We’re delighted to be working with the Department for International Trade on our first joint virtual rail trade mission. This mission follows our series of Rail Outreach Webinars, each exploring a different international market, with the July edition on Canada attracting a very large UK audience.
“Canada is of keen interest to UK rail suppliers and was listed in the top ten priority markets for UK rail businesses in the recent Rail Sector Deal Exports Survey. The Canadian Government has made infrastructure investment a high priority, with £48 billion in planned and announced rail projects over the coming decades.
“So, this trade mission is a great opportunity to showcase UK expertise in rail and shows how the industry is working collaboratively with Government to overcome the travel restrictions caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, ensuring we continue to promote UK plc in these difficult times.”
