The Department for International Trade at RWM 2021

The Department for International Trade (DIT) helps businesses export and grow into global markets, as well as supporting overseas companies to invest and grow in the UK. RWM are pleased to partner with the organisation, offering a platform for your company to come and meet with the DIT at the show to discuss plans and put together strategies for expanding your business overseas.

DIT has investment and trade specialists who can help you commission services from local experts in the UK and overseas, including country, sector and policy advice, local market research, support during overseas visits, identifying possible business partners, and preparation for exhibitions and events.

Head on over to RWM to meet with trade advisers and find out more about how you can benefit from the DIT’s Services.
