Gaining export advice from the experts
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.”
