The new export strategy kickstarts ‘Race to a Trillion’ as DIT publishes 12-point plan to help UK businesses hit £1 trillion in exports.
The Government has launched an ambitious new ‘Made in the UK, Sold to the World’ plan to help businesses across the UK double exports and sell their world-class products around the globe.
The 12-point export strategy – published by the Department for International Trade – will give businesses the tools they need to become a nation of exporters and reap the benefits of our free trade deals.
It includes an Export Support Service that offers a one-stop shop for exporting advice, and the launch of a new UK Tradeshow Programme better-tailored to help businesses to attend and promote their products around the world.
DIT will also be expanding its Export Academy to roll it out across all of the UK. The academy will invite owners and managers of SMEs to access masterclasses, roundtables and networking events that help them overcome common challenges first-time exporters face.
