Drive targets first time exporters

A new government initiative has been launched to help businesses expand into international markets for the first time.

The First Time Exporters (FTE) initiative, run by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), includes training and advice for companies selling overseas for the first time, such as the opportunity to take part in trade missions to nearby markets to help them develop their first contacts with foreign buyers.

It will also help companies take advantage of digital opportunities, offering dedicated digital trade advisers and an online tool designed to assist their export planning.

First Time Exporters has been launched in the run-up to Export Week, which will take place from 9-13 November. It will feature events across the UK aimed at inspiring businesses to start exporting or increase international trade.

The programme will also include workshops and masterclasses, clinics with UKTI specialists and networking opportunities, as well as digital events such as webinars and Twitter talks.

Trade and Investment Minister Francis Maude, who launched First Time Exporters on 18 May, said he hoped it would encourage more companies to take their first steps on the export journey and take advantage of overseas demand for British goods and services.

He added: “Last year we saw 48,000 companies draw on UKTI support; these businesses went on to create or safeguard 220,440 additional jobs. I would urge businesses of all sizes to use this opportunity to find out more about the services that are available to them through UKTI, regardless of their level of exporting experience.”
