New digital service to help businesses export

FSB Destination Export Cover Earlier this year, FSB published "Export Destination", our report that analysed the UK small business export landscape. The report discovered that the most common challenge facing small businesses who export is both finding customers and in turn marketing their product to overseas customers.One of our key recommendations to the Department for International Trade was to build an online marketing platform for exporters.

As a result, we welcome today’s launch by International Trade Secretary Dr Liam Fox of the new Great.gov.uk platform to make it easier for smaller firms to export more and, crucially, to enable overseas buyers to identify potential UK suppliers. The plan is for this new trade hub to help businesses access millions of pounds’ worth of potential overseas business, give practical advice, and signpost support to help them win lucrative contracts.

 The new platform includes:

 Exporting is GREAT - The demand is out there
