The demand is out there. You should be too.

As the world becomes ever more globalised and digital, the potential for you to reach out to new customers and lucrative new markets beyond the UK has never been greater.

Whatever your sector, there’s a market out there for your products or services. That goes for established markets, like the European Union and US, and high-growth markets such as Brazil, India, China, Colombia, Indonesia and others.

Right now, UK businesses are selling tea to China, wine to France and boomerangs to Australia. The world wants to buy what we’re selling. For them, brand UK is a mark of quality, innovation and excellence.

Again and again, research shows that exporters, of all sizes, are more productive, innovative and resilient to economic downturns; achieve a stronger bottom line; boost their reputation and profile; and are more likely to stay in business.

Of course, making the move into any new market – especially when you’re dealing with a different language, culture or regulations – can feel like a leap into the unknown. But you don’t need to be an old hand at exporting to have an impact globally. Two in five of the UK’s smallest exporters – that’s companies with fewer than 10 employees – are already doing business in at least one high-growth market. To put it simply, there is no limit to what you can achieve.

Exporting is GREAT exists to help more UK exporters like you make exporting work for them. We want to inspire you to make that move overseas and seize the growth it can bring. And we’re working with organisations passionate about helping UK companies like yours to export and excel.
