Highlands and Islands MSP Donald Cameron has welcomed the launch of a new UK Government Trade Hub which is dedicated to helping Scottish businesses win export orders.
Mr Cameron said: “The new Scottish hub will help businesses in my region, which produce many world-beating products and services, to even greater success overseas. The UK is one of the world’s leading trading nations with networks across the globe, and by leveraging the strength of the UK Government through the hub, we can create new jobs and new opportunities."
“I urge all local companies with an interest in securing overseas orders to get in touch and explore the range of support on offer.”
The Trade Hub will be based at Queen Elizabeth House, a UK government HQ opened last month in Edinburgh.
Through the Trade Hub, businesses will be able to utilise the UK government’s global networks, expertise and influence, as well as world-leading credit agency, UKEF, to grow their overseas trade and build back from the impact of coronavirus
