£488 million of govt capital investment unlocked
The paper contains three key points that emphasise support for small and medium-sized enterprises in expanding their business and increasing their export activity.
The proposals include:
1. Launching new trade finance and insurance products that will better support exporters - especially SMEs - and ensure that the service the Government provides to UK exporters competes well against similar services provided in other countries;
2. Lobbying European partners to improve the regulatory environment in the Single Market for SMEs - including reducing unnecessary accounting and audit requirements; and,
3. Increasing UK Trade and Investment's focus on emerging markets and launching a new online service offering access to sales leads around the world.
