BUSINESSES in Gloucestershire are being encouraged to export their goods.
The Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) want all businesses to look at their export options following an "Exporting for Growth" event on June 26, which was attended by around 50 businesses that wanted to discover possible export opportunities for their company.
The event, at Lloyds TSB in Barnwood, was run by the LEP's Business Membership Group, which brings together more than 50 business membership organisations and UKTI.
Terry Morgan, chair of the LEP's Business Membership Group, said: "Export is vital for creating jobs and improving the Gloucestershire economy and the LEP will continue to highlight our export success stories from across the county.
"But the Business Membership Group still wants a lot more businesses to come forward that could become successful exporters given some individually tailored advice and support."
