Gain­ing ex­port ad­vice from the ex­perts

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS / NEWS -

More than 80 York­shire busi­nesses have gained first-hand ad­vice on trad­ing over­seas over the last year. Some of the re­gion’s most ex­pe­ri­enced ex­porters have sup­ported the launch of Ex­portEx­change, a free peer-to-peer over­seas trade net­work for Leeds City Re­gion busi­nesses.

The pro­gramme, which is backed by the Eu­ro­pean Re­gional De­vel­op­ment Fund, matches would-be ex­porters with firms from the re­gion that are al­ready sell­ing suc­cess­fully over­seas and can of­fer free per­sonal ad­vice on all as­pects of ex­port­ing.

Ex­portEx­change net­work man­ager Vic­to­rian Bold­ison said: “In its first year Ex­portEx­change has proved to be an es­sen­tial re­source for SMEs that are con­sid­er­ing ex­port­ing.

“The im­por­tance for busi­nesses of be­ing able to ac­cess ad­vice and in­for­ma­tion from firms such as Tay­lors and Har­ro­gate Spring Wa­ter on how to make a suc­cess of sell­ing over­seas has been demon­strated many times over. We have more would-be ex­porters join­ing the pro­gramme all the time. I would urge any­one con­sid­er­ing ex­ports to reg­is­ter for free ad­vice and sup­port.”
