Five pilot Local Export Partnerships (LEPs) have been launched by the Scottish Government and Scottish Chambers of Commerce to increase the number of firms exporting their products and services. The aim of the LEPs is to offer support and expertise to companies, particularly SMEs, with little or no previous exporting experience to help them enter international markets.
The Glasgow and Lanarkshire Local Export Partnership has been formalised and includes Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, Lanarkshire Chamber of Commerce, Scottish Development International, Glasgow City Council, Business Gateway Glasgow, North and South Lanarkshire Councils and Lanarkshire Enterprise Services.
We have been developing an ExportHub App which will keep you up to date with all the support, advice, networking and training opportunities that are available through our partners and members on everything relating to international trade. You can upload comments, suggestions and videos relating to your own experiences, challenges and successes.
We will also be delivering Passport to Export – a series of short, sharp, interactive workshops that will give you all the information you need to start trading internationally.
Check out the International section of our website to find details of the Export Hub App, the Passport to Export as well as information about other international trade events, business visits and much more. To discuss any aspect of international trade development please contact
