Investment in international trade and export support welcomed by BCC
3rd December 2012
Commenting on the announcement that the Treasury is to provide up to £1bn of support for UK small business exporters, British Chambers of Commerce Director General John Longworth said: -We are pleased that the Chancellor is listening to our call for greater investment in trade and export support, which can help companies break into new markets across the globe.
Exporting businesses will welcome the commitment of new funding, as long as it is used to help them strengthen their exporting capability and to exploit opportunities in fast-growing markets overseas. -We also welcome the fact that the Government recognises the crucial role played by Chambers of Commerce, both here in the UK and overseas, as a unique resource for exporters and as the first port of call for traders the world over.
