James Sunderland questions Government on improving the attractiveness of British exports

James Sunderland asks the Under-Secretary of State for International Trade about efforts to improve the attractiveness of British exports.

James Sunderland (Bracknell)  (Con)

As we embark on our recovery from covid-19 in the post-EU era, will my hon. Friend provide the assurance that businesses in Bracknell need, and will he please outline what measures have been considered to improve the attractiveness of British exports? (912490)

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for International Trade (Graham Stuart)

Bracknell businesses should be assured that we have a plethora of new initiatives to whet their exporting appetites. We are committed to helping businesses realise their economic potential through exports, and we provide a comprehensive global system of support to help them do so. There are a range of initiatives that enhance UK exporting, including our international export hubs, the £38 million internationalisation fund providing grants, and UK Export Finance’s general export facility, another new initiative, all of which combine to help upskill firms, build their capability and finance everyday costs.
