Local MP, Caroline Dinenage, is leading a local drive to bring free government support to more firms in Gosport - helping them take advantage of export opportunities and tap into demand for British products from overseas.
By organising a series of events throughout 2021, Caroline is helping businesses in the Gosport Constituency to find out how they can start or grow international sales and get free government support to do it.
The first event will take place at 11am on Friday 12th March. Caroline is working closely with the Department for International Trade (DIT) as part of the coveted Parliamentary Export Programme, to help local businesses access the support they need to boost their exporting potential.
Whether a business is new to exporting, has exported in the past or is a current exporter, participating in the programme will equip them with the support and tools they need to begin or continue their exporting journey.
Caroline is a founding member of the Parliamentary Export Programme where selected cross-party MPs organise and chair virtual meetings with experts from business and government.
Commenting, Caroline said:
"Helping our local businesses survive and then recover from the pandemic is one of my top priorities. That's why I'm delighted to be hosting events that can save local jobs and give businesses in the Gosport Constituency access to information, advice and finance to sell internationally.
“I’m determined to ensure that our area does not get left behind and whatever services are available are provided here to help us get back on our feet after Covid.
“The events I’m organising are free and all businesses in the Gosport Constituency have to do is register on the link below. Experts and experienced exporters will be online to provide free advice including on government supported working capital and the practicalities of post-Brexit trade."
