The Department for International Trade have launch a new website – www.GREAT.gov.uk which aims to, intelligently and simply, match supply and demand, putting power in the hands of businesses to start exporting or attract investors, and to make doing business abroad as attractive as it is to do business at home. Once registered, companies can promote their goods and services to international buyers, search hundreds of export opportunities and access preferential deals that we have negotiated with online marketplaces. The Department for International Trade want the site to be the first place businesses think of when they consider doing business abroad, acting as an aggregator for the complex exporting market by also signposting to other sources of advice.
The Department for International Trade are supporting this launch with a marketing programme to encourage target businesses to visit GREAT.gov.uk and encourage them to register as exporters, in advance of international promotion in the New Year.
To help you promote these new services they have developed a GREAT.gov.uk Introductory Pack which I hope you will refer to and use as you communicate with your business networks.
