BIS: Trade and Investment for Growth White Paper

09 February 2011
Paper setting out the UK's strategy for delivering long term growth through exports.

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.
