Iain Stewart MP welcomes today’s announcement that British businesses exporting to Europe will now be able to access one-to-one advice via a new phone and online service that has been launched.
Following extensive engagement with businesses, the Department for International Trade is making it easier for exporters and those considering exporting to access the information they need to export to the rest of Europe.
From queries around rules of origin, to guidance on recognising professional qualifications and entering new markets, the Export Support Service will provide a single point of contact. It will help exporters navigate a range of complex information simply and quickly.
Europe is a key destination for high-quality UK goods and services. In 2020 alone, the UK exported £288bn worth of goods to Europe - with medicinal and pharmaceutical products, and cars among the top five.
Milton Keynes South MP, Iain Stewart said:
“On the back of hosting a Parliamentary Export Programme event, I know that there is a real appetite for businesses in Milton Keynes to export their goods and services across the globe.
“By having this dedicated hotline and online service for exporting businesses, it will make the process much easier and informative for those embarking on this journey.”
The strategy will promote UK business's ability to seize the opportunities to sell goods and services around the globe. It will ensure our most productive businesses can compete using our new independent trade policy, supporting jobs and prioritising the UK’s most dynamic sectors.
