International Trade

International trade can be one of the most important drivers of business growth. Our expert knowledge enables us to work with businesses seeking to access or further develop global markets to drive their profitability and expansion.

We’ve been proud to be a UK Trade and Investment and now a Department for International Trade (DIT) delivery partner since 2007, supporting the Government’s drive towards 100,000 new exporters and £1 trillion of exports by 2020. Under the DIT brand, we offer a number of key services that can be tailored to meet the needs of your business:

  • overseas market intelligence and market selection advice
  • practical one to one support from expert trade advisers
  • access to information, contacts, advice and support through overseas business networks in over 100 markets
  • access to major contract purchasers alongside opportunities to explore new markets via trade missions and country visits
  • financial support for trade development activity that will result in export sales such as participation in overseas trade fairs and exhibitions, market visits and consultancy support
  • online information and email alerts highlighting export opportunities, major international contracts, joint ventures and partnerships.
