Meet the Trade Officer, Daresbury, March 2017

Our Director worked with Chemicals Northwest to organise and host an afternoon of chemical company one-to-one meetings with UK-based and overseas staff from the Department for International Trade.

She liaised with all DIT staff to ensure availability and understand the areas of expertise on offer, then recruited relevant local companies interested in a 20 minute appointment with each officer for guidance on: practical approaches to market research, how DIT North West could assist in growing business overseas, national activity by DIT Chemicals Sector Group in London and help from the chemicals trade officers from DIT Düsseldorf and Barcelona on market entry or resolving current issues.

Despite a small hiccup in flights and having to set up Skype appointments with Barcelona the feedback from delegate companies was very positive with the sessions described as encouraging and providing real opportunities to grow business.
