Get your essential guide to exporting
Your business will be able to access free export advice this summer when the Exporting is GREAT tour makes its second visit to Scotland.
The Export Hub is an initiative led by the UK Government Department for International Trade backed by Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and the Scottish Council for Development and Industry. It will visit Gretna Green, Prestwick Airport, Cairndow, the Isle of Skye, Inverness, Forres, Perthshire and Fife.
“Over 11,000 companies in Scotland have taken their businesses to the next level through exporting, which is much more straightforward than many initially believe, " explains Neil Francis, our director of international operations.
“Whatever the size or nature of your business, exporting can offer untold opportunities if approached in the right way.
"Scotland already exports £27.5 billion worth of goods and services all over the world, but there is plenty of room to increase this and I encourage anyone who’s even remotely interested in learning more to join us at the roadshow and explore the options.”
