New first time exporters guide published

From Local to Global – a new guide for first-time exporters – will also be published today, fronted by Dragons’ Den investor and Government Export Ambassador Kelly Hoppen.

The most recent Small Business Survey in 2012 from BIS shows that 13% of women-led small and medium-sized businesses in the UK export compared with the national average of 19%.

This gap represents an opportunity, and projections suggest that the UK could have up to an extra 10,000 exporters if these businesses grew and exported at the same rate as the average.

Read the guide in full and find out what other activities are taking place as part of Export Week.
