The Railway Industry Association, the voice of the UK rail supply community, has welcomed the start of trade negotiations between India and the UK.

Neil Walker, Exports Director at the Railway Industry Association (RIA), said: “Many UK railway businesses will welcome negotiations starting on a new Free Trade Agreement with India.

“Both nations have a strong railway history and have Governments seeking to expand their networks through rail investment in the future. India is one of the top priority markets for UK rail suppliers, where they believe railway goods and services can be exported with further assistance, showing that with the right conditions there is a real opportunity to increase rail trade between the two nations.

“We look forward to working with the UK Government to support the negotiations and to ensure rail plays a central role in any agreed trade deal, supporting more exports growth, jobs and investment across the UK.”
