SO, HOW DO OUR INTERNATIONAL TRADE ADVISORS HELP BLACK COUNTRY BUSINESSES?
International Trade Advisors (ITAs) are experts in matters of international trade and work one-on-one with businesses to develop their export capabilities, equipping them with tailored advice.
The expertise that ITAs offer can be invaluable when it comes to trading across the globe.
Referrals to specialist advisors, such as digital and IP advisers
Exclusive invitations to free export events such as business culture workshops and meet the buyer events
Assistance with grant applications
Support with market research and selection
Contact with DIT teams in target markets
Access to networking events
Help with attending trade shows, domestically and internationally
A key element to the support that local DIT teams can offer is the access to real-time information, contacts, advice and assistance on market entry.
DIT employ Commercial Officers, based in the Embassies and High Commissions all over the world and also work closely with Partners.
These sector specialist roles are key to helping companies understand the market and how they can approach and win business.
They highlight and identify opportunities, support where they may be issues and can also offer a tailored Overseas Market Research Service (OMIS).
The OMIS is a chargeable service which offers bespoke country and sector advice, local market research and identification of possible business partners.
They also offer support during overseas visits and the teams always welcome a visit to the Embassy from a UK company representative for a coffee and a chat when they are in town.
Whether a confident exporter looking for specialist advice or business at the start of an export journey, International Trade Advisors can help to tap into new markets and increase overseas sales.
