RORY ENCOURAGES CUMBRIAN BUSINESSES TO STRENGTHEN THEIR EXPORT ACTIVITIES
Rory is urging Cumbrian businesses to attend regional events during the UK Trade & Investments Export Week during the week of November 11-15, which aim to get businesses to either start exporting or expand their export activity. 130 UKTI Trade Specialists from over 70 markets will hold pre-booked 1-2-1 meetings for any company that signs up, as well as holding seminars and presentations on logistics, banking, export market research and IP Protection for SMEs trying to make their first overseas order.
“Cumbria has an incredible depth of talent when it comes to manufacturing, and the quality of our goods is second to none. I do worry sometimes though that we don’t shout enough about this. The opportunity therefore for local companies to meet with UKTI experts on a 1-2-1 basis and talk through their export strategies, is definitely something I would encourage local businesses to explore further.”
