Lancashire Business View is working in partnership with the Department for International Trade to provide businesses across the North with the information and help they need to support their international ambitions.

Opening doors for Tech and Digital trade in Asia Pacific

Doors are opening in Asia Pacific for northern businesses which provide technical and digital products and services.

This broad sector supports the development of so many others from education, through professional services, to manufacturing, construction, logistics, healthcare...

Environmental concerns and the move to Smart Cities in Asia Pacific are creating new and growing opportunities for those in technology and digital while new trade agreements are progressing which will increase the ease of doing business for UK companies.

Whether seasoned in overseas trade or considering a first venture, dedicated support is available here in the north and on the ground around the world.

At this event, we’ll hear from businesses who have taken their digital and technical services and products overseas.

Their lived experiences will be complemented by the expert advisors who help smooth their journeys.
