I am backing support for export champions to drive forward the British economy. Last week I attended an International Trade Export Event in Parliament with Trade Minister Mike Freer MP and expert officials at the Department for Trade to hear more about the help exporters can get from the Government.
Now we have left the EU, there are a huge range of opportunities for British businesses. Around four-fifths of businesses supported by UK Export Finance are small and medium-sized enterprise businesses. I am keen to help any local businesses looking for export help – so please do get in touch.
There is lots of help on offer. The Department for International Trade recently launched a range of training and information tools to help businesses looking to export to new areas. There is also finance support available, through export guarantees and direct finance with support exceeding £50 Billion. So it’s well worth businesses exploring the backing that is available.
