This week Immingham hosted the Department for International Trade's (DfIT) Export Hub so that local businesses could make contacts and gain information that will help them start or expand their exporting ventures.
North East Lincolnshire and the wider Humber region have a great deal to offer the world from seafood to chemicals to offshore energy. I encouraged all local businesses in attendance to seize the opportunities before them in order to grow and thrive.
Businesses who were unable to attend the event can find out more by using 'Export Opportunities' an online DfIT service that allows companies to register for 1000’s of free sales leads in 42 sectors in over 100 countries. These are sourced by The Department for International Trade experts and put you in touch with companies in that market who are looking to source goods and services from the UK.
