According to a recent survey by Lloyds Bank Corporate Markets, exports are rising as business looks to diversify into fast growing economies. However, it warned, trading overseas has associated risks.
Alan Bracken of ABTS Training Services commented: “Many UK companies are now expanding into new global markets which can only be good for our faltering economy.
“However, they must have a strong understanding about the business of exporting, such as negotiation skills with overseas partners and understanding the different commercial cultures. They must be in a position to deliver the sharp end of exporting in terms of understanding documentation and freight rates and working with third party providers such as clearing agents and freight forwarders.
“Get it right and it is a smooth operation. Get it wrong and you are in deep trouble.”
Getting it right is the theme of ABTS Training Service’s five week, part time, International Trade course. By the time you have completed the course you will be ready to export profitably and with a clear knowledge of what is required of you.
Great value, great tutor, the course taught me all I need to know about international trade. I now feel confident enough to start buying electrical goods from India.
