Next month businesses in Essex will have an opportunity to attend an export bootcamp workshop. The workshop will be held on the Department for International Trade’s Export Hub, which will be situated at Crittall Windows on Freebournes Road in Witham on Friday 3 February 2017. The Export Hub is coming to Witham following a request from Witham MP Priti Patel and is being supported by Essex Chambers of Commerce, Braintree District Council and Essex County Council. Priti said:
”Essex is a County of entrepreneurs with outstanding businesses producing world leading goods and services. There are new opportunities opening up across the world all the time and I want to see our businesses best-placed to provide the rest of the world with the high quality goods and services they need. The Export Hub will help local businesses get a foothold into these new markets.”
Priti also thanked Crittall Windows for holding the event at their site. Priti said:
“I want to thank Crittall Windows for allowing us to use their site for the event and supporting it. They are a great business whose fantastic products are highly regarded across the world.”
Denise Rossiter, Chief Executive of Essex Chambers of Commerce, added:
"We are pleased to support this initiative to inform businesses about the opportunities to be gained from exporting. From the work that we do with our International Trade department we know that Essex businesses are keen to export and looking for new opportunities overseas, which is even more important following the country's decision to leave the EU"
"We would urge businesses to take advantage of this "Export Bootcamp" but also to look out for the courses and workshops that the Chambers run throughout the year to support existing and potential exporters, details of which can be found on our website"
