Whilst continuing their support for more experienced exporters, the Government is keen to encourage new businesses to start exporting. UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) can help deliver this by providing export help through a number of services.

UKTI Business Opportunities provides free sales leads.

These can vary from professional services, creative and media, as well as traditional manufacturing sectors such as automotive, aerospace, energy, clothing and food & drink.

The Business Opportunities team provides leads, information and tenders to help SMEs actively start exporting. Whether a first time exporter or an established one, we have services to match your business requirements.

The first step to take advantage of this free alert service is to go to our website, register for an account and set up a profile to receive tailored emails relevant to your business.
