The Department for International Trade has relaunched their website to support small businesses in exporting their goods. Research has shown again and again that exporters are more productive, adaptable and resilient. They achieve a stronger bottom line and are more likely to stay in business. However, of over 2.5 million registered UK businesses, only 11% export. has been designed to help business owners take this next step. The website acts as a single digital destination for Trade and Investment, bringing together UK businesses, international buyers, international investors and online marketplaces. It will give users access to millions of pounds worth of potential overseas business, as well as signpost first class information, preferential deals with e-commerce sites and great support services to help businesses win lucrative contracts.

Commenting, Caroline said:

“As Britain looks to forge new relationships with the rest of the world, it’s never been a better time for small businesses to consider the benefits of exporting.

I am a huge champion of local businesses, and have seen first-hand how much Gosport’s businesses have to offer. Making the move into any new market can be daunting, but the Government’s new digital services make it so much easier. I urge every business owner to take a look!”
