The British Aviation Group welcomes the new Government / industry partnership to boost construction exports and would look for this to provide opportunities across the UK supply chain. 


New service launched by Greg Hands to help UK construction companies secure billions in new contracts abroad. 

The Department for International Trade will join with 17 of the UK’s leading firms from the infrastructure industry in a new partnership to help UK companies secure major international contracts.

Infrastructure Exports: UK (IE:UK) will bring together companies of all sizes to bid for global infrastructure contracts as a single ‘Team UK’ consortia, to deliver complex projects by combining their expertise.

Launched on 5th July 2017, the new body will be co-chaired by International Trade Minister, Greg Hands, and James Wates CBE, Chairman of the Wates Group. It aims to make the UK more competitive on the global stage and bring smaller companies into the infrastructure export supply chain.

International Trade Minister Greg Hands said:

“Global infrastructure investment is set to increase rapidly in the coming years and we must make sure UK firms are in prime position to take advantage of it.

“Our ‘Team UK’ approach will bring together leading UK infrastructure companies to showcase their expertise on a global scale and work together to successfully bid for the biggest contracts.”
