Black Country Chamber International Trade Team Helps Clients Win £40m of Overseas Business

The Black Country Chamber of Commerce aim is to double the size of the Black Country economy over the next 10 years. Increasing the value of exports is a significant part of reaching this aim.

The Black Country Chamber International Trade team are delighted to have helped their clients get nearly £40M in overseas business since April this year. The team have assisted local businesses to develop their export strategy and find new opportunities in overseas markets.

The International Trade team have helped clients with very little international experience through to those who are very experienced but are looking to try something new. They have solved one off problems and put many clients in touch with a network of opportunities across the World. Many Black Country businesses have taken advantage of the free advice from an International Trade Advisor to help them gain business overseas.  

Ninder Johal, President of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, said: “The Black Country Chamber of Commerce is committed to help raise the value of exports in the region: it is part of our aim to double the size of the Black country economy over the next ten years. Although the risks in exporting have increased in some parts of the world, there are significant opportunities for our home grown high quality niche providers to demonstrate what the Industrial Heart of the UK is capable of manufacturing.”

Alongside running the UKTI contract, the Chamber has been instrumental in developing a new Export Expert programme in partnership with the Black Country Growth Hub. The Export Expert programme is aimed at companies who need an extra resource for a short period of time to help boost their export activity. This programme is delivered in conjunction with the UKTI services so the company gets a tailored approach to their export needs.
