The Government has created The Department for International Trade (DIT) to bring trade promotion and trade policy together. As a result UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) has been integrated into the DIT to support exporters and facilitate inward investment.

To help businesses on their way the UK’s five major high street banks have signed up to work with the Department for International Trade to revolutionise the way businesses access international markets. Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, NatWest and Santander are getting behind the Government’s drive to populate a new and unique Directory of Exporters.

The Directory will link UK companies with contacts from around the world. Potential customers and buyers from global markets will be able to search for companies from across the whole of the UK which are ready to supply the products, services and skills they need. Register your interest in joining the UK Exporter Directory.

The DIT wants to help British businesses new to selling overseas to become successful exporters of goods and services. First-time and established exporters can access expert advice and information on exporting available via the DIT’s Exporting is GREAT initiative, a key element of the Government’s newly-launched, a single digital destination for trade and investment, bringing together and connecting UK businesses, international buyers and international investors.
