RIA launches new online mini-series to support rail exports
The Railway Industry Association (RIA) has launched three webinars, in partnership with the Department of International Trade (DIT), to support UK rail companies looking to export.
In each webinar, attendees will hear from DIT Trade Advisors from across a number of European countries on the opportunities to UK companies in their respective markets. The three webinars include:
- Austria, Portugal, Spain & Switzerland, 6 May 2020, 11am to 12.30pm
- Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania (including a Rail Baltica update), 11 May 2020, 1 to 2.30pm
- Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, 27 May 2020, 2 to 3.30pm
All webinars are free to attend and are open to all.
Neil Walker, Exports Director at the Railway Industry Association, said: “The Coronavirus outbreak will pose significant challenges to exporters in the rail industry, with international travel halted and a number of overseas trade fairs and exhibitions understandably postponed. Nevertheless, there are still a wealth of opportunities for UK exporters in international markets, so RIA - in partnership with the Department for International Trade - is launching a mini-series of webinars open to all in the UK industry. Through the series, you’ll hear from a number of DIT Trade Advisors across different European nations, providing an update on their respective markets and what opportunities there are for British companies. We encourage all – whether you’re a seasoned exporter or never traded overseas before – to join us for these fascinating sessions!”
