Central and Eastern Europe | Balancing trade risks | Emerging Markets

Christmas in Krakow
Five tips for trade success

Patrick Ney and Russell Towlson from the British Polish Chamber of Commerce Trade discussed export opportunities in Central and Eastern Europe at the British Chamber of Commerce 2015 International Trade Conference.

English is widely spoken in Central and Eastern Europe and this, coupled with quick flight routes, makes it an ideal market for British businesses looking to expand overseas. These countries are set for economic growth and if businesses are willing to do their research and commit enough time to making it work, they will see a return on investment.


Balancing the risks and opportunities of international trade

Also at the British Chambers of Commerce 2015 International Trade Conference, representatives from UK Export Finance, Rolls-Royce and Control Risks joined a panel session to discuss how to do business in high growth markets.

Whilst there can be risks involved in international business, it’s also important to recognise the many opportunities available. The panel advised that businesses can take many measures to succeed internationally, including seeking support from partners. Our latest blog outlines all their advice for businesses looking to go global.

Emerging markets
Emerging markets set for growth in 2016

Emerging markets account for 70 per cent of global currency reserves and 55 per cent of global GDP, which is a huge increase from the 30 per cent share they held ten years ago. According to Goldman Sachs, these economies are likely to grow by 4.9 per cent in 2016.

In recent years, emerging market countries have started trading more with each other than ever before, accounting for more than a third of all cross-border commerce – and this figure continues to rise.

There’s no better time to start investing in, and trading with the emerging markets. Visit the DHL Guide for advice and support.
