GM Chamber International Trade Forum | February 2017
Following on from the 2nd GMCC International Trade Forum in September 2016, we have announced the next edition to take place on 16th February 2016. Our third meeting will be sponsored by GM Chamber Member MoneyCorp and explore the theme of ‘Capitalising on the Weak Sterling to Boost Your Exports’.
The pound has decreased significantly against the dollar since the UK voted to leave the European Union. While this is making our exports more attractive and we become more competitive overseas, our imports are becoming significantly more expensive. With uncertainty being the most certain thing at this moment in time, Greater Manchester’s exporters need to protect themselves and understand how to capitalise on this weak sterling in order to drive business growth.
