Exporting is great

Exporting is GREAT is the Government’s most ambitious export campaign ever. It aims to inspire and support 100,000 additional UK exporters to sell their goods and services overseas by 2020. The campaign’s mission is to turn the UK into the world’s greatest exporting nation, capturing the imagination of the public, boosting business confidence and national pride and empowering more UK companies to go out and succeed in global markets. Every day in every country around the world, there is someone somewhere who wants or needs a UK product or service. The demand is out there, you could be too. Parcelforce Worldwide and Royal Mail are proud to be supporting this inspiring export campaign.
