Department for International Trade Logo

The Department for International Trade helps first time or experienced exporters to grow their sales in new markets.

It does this through locally-based International Trade Advisers combined with a network of 110 teams located in British Embassies and Consulates overseas.

DIT also runs a programme of specialist events in Kent on winning and delivering business internationally plus regular visits to overseas markets and events.

The DIT South team has assembled a comprehensive EU-funded support package for Kent & Medway businesses looking to grow their international sales in 2019.

The package is free to businesses like yours and is delivered via our team of specialist International Trade Advisers in your area, supported by our teams based in British Embassies around the world. The custom-built programme will provide your team and you with expertise and resources to identify new sales opportunities and enhance your company’s sales tools and customer service proposition.

Our International Trade Advisers will guide you through this accelerated export programme and can offer your business access to:

  • Financial support and subsidies to access new sales markets
  • Free masterclasses and workshops to build capacity and skills
  • Free market selection consultancy service
  • Free international digital audit service
