Our organisation, UK Trade & Investment, has been established by the government to help companies export. We have had feedback over the years from companies on what support is most useful and we have developed a range of services to help exporters develop sales overseas.
In over 100 overseas markets we have locally employed people working for us, they used to be called commercial attaches, and their language skills, knowledge of local business cultures and knowledge of their business sectors can provide significant support for UK businesses. Our organisations “USP” is its ability to identify appropriate international contacts and to set up meetings with them on behalf of UK companies.
We provide financial support for companies exhibiting overseas and significant grant support for companies undertaking international market research. We also provide significant support for executives working in international trade, from heavily subsidised courses at Cranfield Business School to 1 day workshops on Researching International Markets.

The best way for you to start working with us, is for one of our advisers to meet with you to assess your specific needs and to recommend appropriate support.
