Passport to Export
How Can Passport Help Me?
Passport to Export is an assessment and skills-based programme that provides new and inexperienced exporters with the training, planning and ongoing support they need to succeed overseas. The programme puts together in one simple responsive process all the tools that exporting companies need to grow their business.
Companies receive an indepth capability assessment, and face to face training from export professionals. This will help them understand the stages of export in relation to your own business, and develop a focused action plan. Passport can also help with market selection, market research and support for visits to potential markets
Passport is structured, but flexible enough to be tailored to meet the needs of the company. Throughout the process the company benefits from expert advisory support from a local International Trade Advisor to help deliver the elements of support.
