Trade Asks Briefing

27 July 2020

RIA has published its key trade asks for the rail supply community as the UK looks to develop an independent trade policy post the EU-transition period:

  1. Rail to continue to be included in the negotiation of free trade deals – UK rail exports are a real growth opportunity;
  2. Access to an appropriately skilled workforce and mobility for skilled UK workers, at all levels, to enable the UK to compete globally;
  3. Consistent application of standards with mutual recognition/equivalence and non-discrimination as core principles in all trade agreements; and
  4. Smooth cross border trade rules – which minimise cost and delay, and avoid trade distortionary tariffs as much as possible.
