Empowering your business to trade internationally

Brand Great Britain

There is still significant demand for British products. By and large we can trade anywhere in the world and Brand ‘Great Britain’ is still regarded as being synonymous with quality and can, in some regions, even demand a premium.

You may think that the cultural or language barriers are too great and the market a little too risky but other businesses in other markets are busy carving niches for themselves globally and establishing themselves as preferred international suppliers.

The government is striking trade deals at pace but it will take a lot of time to replicate the preferential landscape we had as part of the EU. Meantime you could be missing out on trading opportunities.

As well as support from our advisers you also have access to free international trade support via our partner, the Export Department.

Hands-on specialists that know their stuff!

This free programme caters for all whether you are an importer, exporter or both; novice or experienced; from the service or goods sector; it really doesn’t matter.

It offers small and medium-sized businesses hands-on support, guidance and funding to recognise your global trade potential.

There really is no challenge or opportunity too great to explore in this programme.  The only limitation is your international trade ambition.

You can view more details on this leaflet.
