Everyone wants new customers and for their business to grow. But if that means expanding into new international markets, the prospect can be a daunting one.
How can you minimise the risks? How do you navigate your way through all the red tape? And how do you find the time and money to investigate overseas markets, while still running your business? That’s where we can help.
We have a dedicated team of experts with real life experience in many industry sectors and international markets. So whether we’re assessing your export potential or advising on export to specific regions, all the help you need is here.
Commercial staff from the British Embassies, Consulates and High Commissions around the world make regular visits to the UK to brief British companies on the latest developments in their relevant markets and sectors.
These officers are employed by the British government to facilitate trade and two-way investment and are made up of British nationals and locally engaged citizens. The latter are recruited for their private sector knowledge and experience. Officers provide information, advice and assistance to small and medium sized exporters by:
- informing them about the market and its potential
- advising on local trading practices and difficulties
- encouraging suitable new exporters to enter the market
- resolving any specific problems of individual exporters
