    Rail Industry Group (RIG) The Rail Industry Group is a newly formed ARA working group comprised of the CEOs of Australian rail manufacturing primes and suppliers and endeavours to:

    Encourage a visible, secure and coordinated long term pipeline for procurement opportunities; and

    Advocate the role of rail in driving growth, stimulating jobs, and growing the Australian economy.

    The RIG meets quarterly to discuss common issues, inform the ARAs policy agenda and drive initiatives.

    RIG came together in 2014 to workshop a new strategy that proposes six key platforms to stimulate growth, improve productivity and to develop a globally competitive supply chain. The platforms are:

    To drive growth by investing in: 1. Productive and efficient infrastructure; and 2. Strategies to capitalise on international opportunities.

    To improve productivity by focussing on: 3. Harmonisation of performance specifications and standards; and 4. Critical skills training and development.

    To promote a competitive domestic rail supply chain through: 5. Innovation, technology and advanced manufacturing; and 6. Developing supplier capability and entrepreneurial heft.

    The ARA and RIG is currently socialising the strategy through correspondence and meetings with the Hon. Ian Macfarlane, Minister for Industry and Science, Federal and State Departments of Industry, ARA Members, the Rail Manufacturing CRC and other key stakeholders.

    Short-term goals include: ensuring that the strategy is widely understood by stakeholders; pipeline of supply opportunities identified; lobbying for the inclusion of rail in government programs; engaging with Austrade to identify international opportunities for

    Australian suppliers; and creating an awareness in government of the importance of

    investment in rail.

    Keen to engage with NZ suppliers as well...
