Business and trade organisations questioned by Lords

22 November 2012

The witnesses will be telling the Committee about the challenges faced by SMEs in exporting their products.

These include the main challenges they face when exporting in their sectors and how these differ from large organisations; how helpful UKTI are and what, if anything, they could do to improve their services; if the Olympics has boosted interest in their products and whether the Government bodies should be doing more to ride the wave of Britain’s current high profile.
