International trade and exporting

With our partners at D2N2 UK Trade and Investment, we have produced the Export for Growth guide to support your business to access overseas markets.

The guide, attached to this page, will help you understand the opportunities out there and who can help you get your export strategy right and ensure that you get paid for the goods or services that you are exporting. It includes case studies of different sized businesses across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire who have exported successfully.
