A word from our Chief Executive: Getting people exporting
Nov 25, 2014Earlier in the year I was asked to be part of the UKTI's e- Exporting Advisory Group. The UKTI's e-Exporting programme is a continuation of the government's commitment to get more UK businesses trading online and meet the UK trade ambition of £1 trillion by 2020. As a company that knows quite a bit about eCommerce we were delighted to be involved.
Throughout the last couple of years we have helped a number of retailers realise their global aspirations and, therefore, are more than aware of the pitfalls that can come with exporting. We often talk about the fact that 'global' doesn't represent one thing and remind retailers that each individual country requires its own strategy and roll-out plan. However, despite the challenges there are also significant benefits to be had therefore it is fantastic that the government has launched this initiative with the objective of helping businesses navigate the challenges of international trade online.
I look forward to being a part of it. So watch this space for updates.
