BUSINESSES in Devon looking to trade internationally will have an opportunity to gain first-hand insight into two of the world's fastest growing economies later this year.
UK Trade and Investment South West is organising trade missions to South Africa and Vietnam this winter. The visits are designed to assist companies that are either new to these potential export markets or have a foothold they wish to develop. Delegates will have access to tailored market research and will also have the opportunity to meet prospective partners and distributors.
Russell Jones, UKTI South West regional director, said: "Trade missions provide participants with unique access to high quality information, business contacts and officials that it would be virtually impossible to achieve alone. With good preparation and follow-up, missions can be great door-openers and participants can often achieve sales and sign contracts on a first visit if they have done their homework well."
The trade mission to Vietnam will take place from November 3 to 10 and the South Africa trade mission will take place from November 16 to 22. More information is available from Angela Maynard-Smith on 01275 370 810 or email@example.com.
