The Department for International Trade is bringing its Exporting is GREAT Export Hub tour to the North West from this week.
Salford, Winsford, Warrington, Leyland and Aintree will all host events as part of the nationwide tour that aims to raise awareness of international trade and get more UK businesses trading overseas.
Beginning at MediaCityUK at Salford Quays, the hub, housed within a 32 tonne campaign truck, will be parked up at the five sites from Monday 26 September where it will host seminars, workshops and one-to-one meetings for local businesses who want to learn more about exporting.
The Salford event is set to include advice on how to undertake business in China with representatives from the Royal Bank of Scotland on how businesses can go about securing payment for services.
Attendees to Wednesday’s event at Victoria Park in Warrington will be provided with insight about the increasing demand for British goods in India, while the penultimate stop at Lancashire Business Park in Leyland will focus on the fashion industry.
The tour comes to an end at Aintree Racecourse on Friday 30 September.
