Growing your business overseas can sometimes seem like a daunting prospect, but it needn’t,' explains UKTI. 'Business who choose to export become 34% more productive in their first year. The world is hungry for ‘Brand Britain’ so there has never been a better time to develop your global network.'
'UKTI are there to help,' says Simon King 'and they've helped me to focus on the markets that are right for us rather than to use a scattergun approach and hope enough enquiries come in to keep the business busy. Exporting is great. It's strengthened the businesses bottom line, created employment, and presented opportunities for growth. We've formed new partnerships. Opened new and exciting markets on our own and with partners. It hasn't been easy; protecting our intellectual property and trademarks has been a challenge - but it's all been made easier with UKTI's support. I wouldn't, for example, leave our shores without first talking to our local UKTI International Trade Advisor (Duncan Slater).'
