UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) has launched a new pilot marketing campaign called Exporting is GREAT that will run throughout May 2013 to help small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) grow internationally.
Exporting is GREAT is designed to increase understanding of the benefits of exporting and to drive awareness, and take-up, of the many sources of support and help available.
The UKTI knows from research that international trade offers a significant boost to a company’s success. Yet less than 25% of UK businesses currently export. Further research indicates that many are discouraged by the real and perceived barriers to international trade, and by limited understanding of the Government support available.
The pilot will run during May in the North of England; however, should the pilot prove successful, UKTI hopes to partner with other organisations later this year to roll out the campaign nationally.
Businesses inspired by Exporting is GREAT will be able to contact UKTI via the campaign webpage or call a free dedicated number to find out more – 0800 093 3217, and if appropriate, arrange an appointment with a UKTI International Trade Adviser.
