Promoting export opportunities in East Surrey

On Friday I hosted an event with Lord Green, UK Trade Minister, at the Surrey National Golf Club in Caterham, to explain to local firms how to boost their exports and win business overseas. Alongside Lord Green and experts from UKTI, the event featured presentations from Tandridge District Councillor Pat Cannon, UK Export Finance, Barclays, and local businesses with a track record exporting to overseas markets. I was delighted that 60 representatives from local firms and organisations were able to attend the event, which was organised in partnership with Surrey Chamber of Commerce. This is part of a series of events I am hosting to support local business throughout the year ? be sure to check back regularly for updates on future events.
