Export is the focus of FSB-backed Bristol event

The FSB in the South West teamed up with  the Institute of Export (IOE) to stage an excellent event focussing on exporting  and how it can transform the business growth of many SMEs.

The event – the South West World Trade Summit - had some great speakers on subjects such as trade with India, trade with China and how to avoid making basic cultural mistakes when trading abroad.

The specific focus was on export 'beyond the EU' which showed that no matter what happens with Brexit there is a large chunk of the rest of the world still very keen and eager to deal with our brilliant SMEs in the UK.

FSB member Linda Middleton-Jones hosted the event and was supported by the FSB's  International Trade policy chair Chris H Walker and it turned out to be a very good event indeed for our members and those from our partners at the IOE.
