Minister urges SMEs to trade abroad to help boost UK business

Business Minister Mark Prisk

Speaking to business leaders in Cambridge at the Going Global: Helping small businesses trade abroad conference today – Business and Enterprise Minister Mark Prisk encouraged entrepreneurs to get trading and help boost the UK economy.

Prisk said:“Giving businesses the confidence to trade abroad is vital to help boost growth in the economy. UK Export Finance is supporting SMEs by introducing a range of financial support for businesses that want to export but can’t obtain the finance they need through the normal commercial routes.

“We are also helping businesses to protect their intellectual property abroad by introducing an online register of advisors as well as placing our first international attaché in China to help UK businesses with enforcement issues. With support from UKTI we will give entrepreneurs the confidence to explore new markets and grow their business.”
