The comments made by Anne-Marie Trevelyan, the Secretary of State for International Trade, on 15 November 2021.
The UK makes some of the best products in the world, but only 1 in 10 businesses currently export them around the world. I want this International Trade Week to be a catalyst for businesses to sell to new markets and take advantage of the trade deals we are negotiating.
My department has a clear message to any business thinking about exporting for the first time. There has never been a better time to export.
Our industry experts in Trade and Investment Hubs around the UK and based around the world will stand shoulder to shoulder and give you the support you need to take the next step on your exporting journey and sell to the world.
