Trading Internationally – Could it be for you?

The Construction Industry Council East Region and UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) are running a FREE evening seminar for construction professionals and SMEs on international trade and the construction industry. The purpose of this evening is to demonstrate the benefits of exporting as only 20% of British SMEs export goods and services overseas while across the rest of Europe that figure is closer to 25% of SMEs. Companies that trade overseas perform better and grow faster than those that do not. Hear from Robert Doak, an International Trade Adviser for UK Trade & Investment, on the support network that’s available to companies looking to sell overseas. There will also be presentations from built environment professionals whose companies are successfully trading overseas. You’ll be able to hear about the obstacles they faced and how they overcame them.
