Exporting is GREAT

The demand is out there. You should be too.

Exporting is GREAT

Right now the world wants UK goods and services. The quality of our products, our expertise, ethos of innovation, creative way of thinking and problem solving capabilities are all reasons why people around the world are looking to the UK for products and services.

The demand is out there, but 70% of non-exporting UK businesses think their product or service is not suitable for overseas markets, and many businesses don’t know how to start their export journey or where to get support.

Exporting is GREAT aims to bring ‘should-be’ exporters face-to-face with the live overseas demand for their goods, services, skills and expertise so businesses can take the correct and most relevant steps towards doing business overseas.

The Department for International Trade’s new online service – GREAT.gov.uk – helps more UK businesses to break onto overseas markets, and take advantage of the global appetite for UK goods and services.
