£13 million awarded by the Government to help 10,000 more British firms export

£13 million awarded by the Government to help 10,000 more British firms export. So contact UKTI for your share!

The funds will go to UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) to help more companies make contacts and sell to overseas markets.

The majority of the investment – up to £9 million – will go directly towards boosting trade opportunities for small and medium sized businesses (SMEs).

This additional funding for SMEs means:

• There will be more money available for SMEs to attend trade shows abroad through expanding the Tradeshow Access Programme

• Substantial discounts will be offered on the Overseas Market Introduction Service (OMIS), which provides targeted market research to help businesses find those crucial first contacts overseas and to help them develop relationships in new, fast-growing markets

• There will be increased support available for travel on overseas trade missions.

In addition, £2.5 million will be invested in helping firms access and win some of the many high-value opportunities that UKTI has identified globally. A further £1.5 million will be used for projects including support for UKTI’s work attracting vital inward investment into our economy.

The £13 million investment will be funded by under spend from the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills’ annual budget for 2011/12. Contact UKTI to locate your nearest trade Adviser
