Businesses across the Marches are being urged to attend a series of seminars aimed at helping them export to Commonwealth countries.
The Department for International Trade is staging the seminars to coincide with the Commonwealth Games coming to Birmingham this summer.
The first of the series – on July 7 at 10am – will concentrate on exporting to Malta and will give an exclusive insight into the opportunities around doing business with the island.
Market experts and trade advisors will give a range of advice during the hour-long session.
Malta has a booming import market which includes refined oil, aircraft, paper, ships, and motor vehicles and there are also opportunities in financial and business services, IT, and travel and transportation services.
A spokesman said: “Malta itself has a population of over half a million, a large tourism economy, and is the background to many films and TV series. A whole lot of people are already exporting to Malta with total exports last year amounting to £910 million.”
There will be introductions from the Department for International Trade and the Malta High
Commission as well as a market opportunities panel with the Malta Business Network, DIT Malta, and Malta Enterprise.
There will also be a five-minute access to the market with Evri (formally
Hermes) and to end the session there will be a business export study as well as a Q&A to wrap things up.
There will also be webinars for Canada on June 22, South Africa on July 14 and Pakistan on July 21.
