Central Devon MP Mel Stride, who chairs the influential House of Commons Treasury Select Committee, has given a helping hand to firms in Devon who want to grow their international sales. As a founding member of the Parliamentary Export Programme, the MP is helping local businesses access free government support take advantage of export opportunities and to tap into demand for British products from overseas. The first virtual event took place on 12th March.
Mr Stride said:
"Helping local businesses survive and then recover from the pandemic is one of my top priorities. That's why I'm delighted to be hosting events that can save local jobs and give businesses in my constituency access to information, advice and finance to sell internationally.
The events are free and all a business has to do is register interest on the link below. Experts and experienced exporters will be available to provide free advice including on government supported working capital and the practicalities of post-Brexit trade."
Whether a business is new to exporting, has exported in the past or is a current exporter, participating in the programme will equip them with the support and tools they need to begin or continue their exporting journey.
