Courses offering an insight into exporting are taking place in Gloucester.
The city council is hosting the seminars on February 20 and 21 to help small or medium sized businesses to understand the terminology, procedures and documentation used in the exporting process.
Council leader, Paul James, said: “These courses will really help to boost the city’s economy. Gloucester is establishing itself as a great place to set up, grow and develop a business. 2011 and 2012 were record breaking years for the number of start-ups and when figures are available we expect them to show that trend continued in 2013.
“According to Experian, there are some 900,000 businesses in the UK which have real potential to start exporting and yet they are still only serving the UK market and businesses are 11% more likely to survive if they export.
“These seminars really show our commitment to local businesses by giving them as much support as we can to grow and succeed.”
They take place at the Twigworth Business Centre from 9.15am.
