UKTI Export Week | Tanzania | Expanding your business with social media

Boost your global trade potential with UKTI Export Week this May

Export Week is specifically designed to help British businesses grow their global reach. Sessions will take place across the UK, with some focused on opportunities in specific markets (including Eastern Europe); others will discuss topics such as navigating international intellectual property laws and provide sector-specific advice.
