On 7 November I attended a seminar hosted by Barclays and the Department of UK Trade and Investment.
Richard from Barclays provided an overview on some of the facts and figures involved with UK imports and exports along with some of the services that Barclays provide in order to make international trading a smoother process.
Ian Readman from UK Trade and Investment explained the benefits of international trading such as spreading the risk, accessing new markets and increased credibility from exporting. He also summarised the many ways that the government agency can help businesses get started with exporting and some of the funding available to help achieve this.
