Export Week is a week of high-profile events in every corner of the UK promoting exporting to businesses. A series of seminars and events will be held to offer unique and informed advice on how to go about doing business almost anywhere in the world, especially the fast-growing markets of the Far East that are the defining characteristic of business in the 21st century.
The global economic centre of gravity has shifted towards high-growth markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China, and others such as Colombia, Indonesia, and Qatar. Increasing numbers of UK companies are prospering by exporting to these markets. With so many millions of potential new customers, low-cost communications, and improving infrastructure many more, smaller
UK companies are amongst those making journeys to Rio or Riyadh, Moscow or Mexico City - and sealing deals for what they have to offer. The time to act is now.
At UK Trade & Investment we know that expansion into high-growth markets can be easier said than done. We manage a range of support for exporters, whether first-time or experienced, large or small, to ensure lasting success overseas and at home.
We also know that one of the biggest investments any company can make is in their time, and we hope that the expertise and advice we’re making available to business across the UK throughout High Growth Markets week can help put UK businesses on a fast track to success.
