Your guide to going global

Two business men pointing at a world map, Working Capital, Corporate Banking

October 2015

Current global trading opportunities present growth prospects that UK businesses are well placed to take advantage of. With British products and services being seen as high quality in overseas markets, the right support can make international expansion the next step in the growth journey for many companies.

Contrary to mainstream perception, more and more small and medium-sized enterprises are embracing the availability of international markets, regardless of having previous export experience.

With the European Union providing unrestricted access to over 500 million consumers, and trade links with North America staying strong, established export markets continue to be available on the UK’s doorstep. Moreover, entering new high-growth markets has never been easier and these economies open up a wealth of opportunities for UK businesses.

To assist with the first step, a range of support services exists to advise current and future UK exporters. ‘Your guide to going global’ , produced in collaboration with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) department, considers issues such as where to export to, the potential presented by the High Value Opportunity programme and sources of help available for new and experienced exporters.
