View from the House: Want to export? Join me to find out more

PUBLISHED: 08:00 02 September 2018


The UK has historically been a great, outwards looking trading nation, selling our goods to every corner of the globe.

Exporting is crucial to our prosperity, stability and security and a key part of our economic international activity. Whether in creating jobs, raising wages or growing our economy, our exporters lead the way.

They account for some 60per cent of our productivity growth and have been a major component of the UK’s strong economic performance since 2010. In the last year we saw UK exports of goods and services rise by 4.4pc - to a record £621billion this year.

Do you export? Would you like to export? Join me and the Department for International Trade (DIT) team on September 14, 9am to midday in Highams Park to learn more.

In partnership with the Department for International Trade (DIT) as a local business you are invited to register for an exclusive export event on-board the Export Hub, a unique 32-tonne venue designed to promote exporting.

This event is aimed primarily at companies who are local to the Chingford and Woodford Green area and is ideal for businesses who are thinking about exporting with no prior experience, exporters with limited experience in one or several markets, or more experienced exporters.

To hear from our guest speakers from DIT and to find out more about:

• Exporting and where to start

• How to access live global export opportunities

• Selling online tools

• Other businesses experiences.
