A new service will help more UK businesses break onto overseas markets, and take advantage of the global appetite for UK goods and services.
The announcement of a new GREAT.gov.uk platform was made today (14 November) by the International Trade Secretary Dr Liam Fox. The platform will:
- give UK businesses secure preferential deals through the Department for International Trade to help them start exporting
- provide a brand new searchable export directory to match businesses according to the worldwide demand for different UK goods and services
The launch of the GREAT.gov.uk trade hub for businesses will help them access millions of pounds’ worth of potential overseas business, give practical advice, and signpost support to help them win lucrative contracts.
The site will act as a single digital destination for trade and investment, bringing together and connecting UK businesses, international buyers and international investors. Whether businesses are new, occasional or frequent exporters, they will be able to take advantage of the new suite of tools and exclusive deals on fees or commissions with some of world’s leading online marketplaces.
