In November 2012, the Prime Minister, David Cameron announced plans to bring about transformational change in the support provided to UK businesses entering new overseas markets, beginning with a campaign to strengthen business networks in forty one high growth and emerging markets by 2017.
The British Chambers of Commerce Global Business Network is a ground-breaking partnership between the British Chambers of Commerce, the Department for International Trade (DIT) and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to facilitate a dynamic network of British Chambers of Commerce and Business Groups in key markets across the globe. Through a programme of capacity building, lead generation and quality accreditation, the shared mission is to provide practical, business-to-business advice and opportunities to UK SMEs seeking to export into new markets - and thereby support the government's twin ambitions to radically increase both the value of UK exports and the number of SMEs who are exporting.
Economic research consistently shows companies who export to any country, in any financial climate, perform better than those that do not. On average, customers earn £100k in additional sales within 18 months after working with DIT.
Our Business Development Manager, Mark Baulch is also the British Chambers of Commerce officially nominated representative in Hampshire for the Global Business Network and will be working to connect local businesses with Overseas Chambers and DIT South East has over 45 International Trade Advisers who can help local businesses rise to the exciting opportunities and challenges that globalisation offers.
