I run a Darts manufacturing company based in the UK, and we are looking to get more customers in the Asia/Pacific markets. I would like to find a trustworthy agent to sell our products, do you have any advice on how to go about finding someone?
I work for UK Trade and Investment and cover the sports and leisure sector, We could certainly help you with an agent or distributor search in the Far East. If you want to meet up in the New Year, I would happily do so and explain how our organisation assists companies with international trade development. If you want to do that you can drop me an email directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you some further information about how we help companies and suggest a meeting date. I gather from the first part of your postcode that you are based somewhere near Slough. Look forward to hearing back from you.
I work for UK trade and Investment in Doha, Qatar. The market for your product is likely to be very small in Qatar. However without further research I cannot provide you with an accurate answer. If you still wish to look further into this market we would be more than willing to assist you. Please feel free to use my email address and to send a company brochure for us to provide you with a more detailed response.
