As part of the Industrial Strategy, the Government is working with industries in a number of sectors to reach agreements with business on ‘sector deals’. These deals will be many and varied in form, but are intended to be agreements that help each sector meet its key challenges and allow business to invest and grow accordingly. This is an important opportunity for the rail sector to champion the substantial contribution we make to the UK economy, and to push for the necessary support to drive forward the UK rail supply chain.
The Rail Supply Group (RSG), in partnership with the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) has been working with Government to develop an industry leading and transformative Rail Sector Deal proposal. The Sector Deal for rail can enable new businesses, collaborating with other complementary industrial sectors, to sell innovative products and services to rail in both the UK and export markets. It is an opportunity to transform our railway and enable the UK’s supply chain to become truly world-leading.
A successful proposal for the sector can be game-changing and transformative for Britain’s rail network, the markets, communities and customers it serves. By working together with the broader industry, the RSG and RDG are developing a proposal that has the potential to transform our railway and enable the UK’s supply chain to become truly world leading. We hope that our offer persuades the Government to prioritise the sector and help unlock its future potential.
