Grow your Business through Exporting

Businesses who export are far more likely to survive and grow. But according to the Confederation of British Industry, only one in five of the UK’s SMEs currently export.

Here’s where Business Durham can help.

We work closely with businesses to access support, particularly from the Department of International Trade (DIT) and the North East England Chamber of Commerce (NEEC).

DIT’s International Trade Advisors draw on a wealth of knowledge from its 2,000 UKTI employees based in the UK and in more than 150 overseas offices in 100 markets.

At the same time, NEEC is a provider of operational support to international businesses in North East England. Its core offer is the provision of services, namely help with export documentation, skills development and letters of credit (transaction management) designed to take the headache out of additional operational elements involved in an international transaction.

If you’re thinking about exporting, or keen to do business with international buyers, give us a call.
