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.
