The Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCI) has organised an event to encourage the region’s businesses to export following the publication of disappointing trade figures.
Exploring Export Markets on March 25 is free and is being held at Chamber House, Edgbaston.
Delegates will be told of the support and assistance available to businesses currently exporting or looking to export in the future and there will also be an opportunity to meet and question trade officers from British Embassies and Consulates.
Steve Cunnane, senior international trade adviser at the BCI, said exporting was essential to rebalance the UK economy.
He said: “Given the favourable global background for British exporters and with a competitive sterling exchange rate, there are excellent opportunities for businesses abroad.
“The Chamber has prioritised its well respected international activities and important trade missions abroad have been lined up for 2010 to brief companies on how to change their markets and products.”
