Minister for Trade and Investment Francis Maude has announced the First Time Exporters initiative, a new package of support which includes training and advice for those companies looking to sell overseas for the first time

The programme, which is run by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), includes the opportunity to take part in trade missions to nearby markets to help companies develop their first contacts with foreign buyers. It also helps companies to take advantage of digital opportunities, with dedicated digital trade advisers and an online tool designed to assist with export planning.

According to Maude: "We hope the launch of First Time Exporters will encourage more companies to take their first steps on the export journey and take advantage of the demand for British goods and services that exists overseas.

"Last year, 48,000 companies drew on UKTI support; these businesses went on to create or safeguard 220,440 additional jobs. I would urge businesses of all sizes to use this opportunity to find out more about the services that are available to them through UKTI, regardless of their level of exporting experience."
