Question

What are the best ways to find sales agents and distributors in African countries, South East Asia and Australasia?

This question was asked at our recent webinar – Finding the right agent or distributor to grow your business overseas

Answer

Hi Maria,

You will be able to find accredited sales agents and distributors through national trade and industry government agencies of the countries you are targeting. Some distributors would also be members of trade/industry associations.

Aside from these, British Chambers and UKTI offices would be able to help you in finding the right local partners, distributors and agents.

I work for the British Chamber of Commerce Philippines (BCCP) and UKTI Manila in delivering services to help companies like yours to export or set up businesses in the Philippines. Our Headstart services are delivered in line with UKTI standards, whom we work closely with. Under Headstart, we can help you understand the market better, arrange market visit for you, introduce you to local contacts like distributors and arrange events to help you promote your product/ services in the market. We also arrange Trade Missions.

Should you be interested in exploring opportunities in the Philippines, we, at the BCCP would be delighted to assist you further.

Kind regards,
