Description

Export insight visit to Latvia

Are you an export-ready West Midlands SME keen to test your product’s export potential and learn what help is available overseas?

The Department for International Trade (DIT) is leading an Export Insight Visit to Latvia, targeting Tech, business and professional services and engineering companies with an interest in infrastructure and rail opportunities. It will give you a taste of what to expect when trading internationally and build contacts to keep you connected once you’re back in the UK. Interested West Midlands-based companies with little experience of exporting must have completed a programme of export preparation.

This 2.5 day visit includes:

  • Trade and Political briefing by Ambassador and DIT team

  • Sector specific half day session

  • 1-2-1 matched meetings with up to three potential partners

  • Networking dinner with Trade Organizations and Associations

  • Return direct flights from East Midlands to Riga, local transfers and two nights hotel accommodation

  • Support from an International Trade Adviser and local DIT staff
