BCC comments at launch of Government’s new Export Strategy
21/08/2018 - Suffolk Chamber of Commerce
Speaking at the launch of the Government’s Export Strategy later today (21 August), Dr Adam Marshall, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), will say that at this time of immense change for the UK economy, it’s crucial to get the national approach to export and trade right.
Welcoming the government’s pledge to work in close partnership with business to identify and maximise opportunities for UK companies in markets around the world, Marshall will say that the new Export Strategy must be complemented by a strong push to ‘fix the fundamentals’ of the domestic business environment in the UK.
John Dugmore, Chief Executive of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, said “it shows how much the Government respects the BCC’s expertise in international trade that Adam has been asked to share a platform with the relevant minister.
Giving the leading business group’s view on the route to export success, Marshall will outline four key ingredients:
- First, the best possible business environment at home – where dynamic companies have incentive to invest and grow.
- Second, products and services that are second to none – where quality and reputation underpins competitiveness.
- Third, consistent efforts to promote the best of British around the world, and
- Fourth, a strong trade policy that helps UK companies and sectors build on their competitive advantages.
“Suffolk Chamber welcomes the Export Strategy and through our enhanced international trade offer, which inlcudes an export documentation service, training courses and trade delegation expertise, we look forward to continuing to help Suffolk businesses boost their export growth.”
