BExA Export Seminar – 9th May 2017

BEXA-seminar-bannerBExA will be hosting an Export Seminar at One Great George Street, London SW1 on the afternoon of Tuesday, 9th May.  The event, which is free to attend, is open to BExA members and non-member SME and exporting companies.   BExA Council is grateful to Barclays Bank PLC for sponsoring the event.

As government urges businesses to make ‘2017 the year of exporting’ and to seek new markets and seize the demand for British goods and services, the BExA Export Seminar will look at some of the opportunities and challenges in doing so.  It will follow the export journey, including trade policy and support available from Government, identifying new markets and opportunities, trade finance solutions and innovation, the implications of Brexit, risks exporters should be aware of, and what happens when it all goes right!

Friday, 21st April 2017
Central Manchester

Guest of Honour:  Councillor Sean Anstee, Leader, Trafford Council

Please note that this seminar will take place in Central Manchester.

Delegates at this seminar will consider the next steps for supporting regional growth across the country, including the Prime Minister’s policy priorities on devolution, economic growth outside of the capital, and the future for a ‘Northern Powerhouse’ in England.

It will bring together policymakers and key stakeholders to examine the accountability of Mayor-led city regions – as well as options for their structures and roles in different areas of the country, including the devolution of powers over transport, housing, planning and skills throughout the four devolution deals that have been agreed across the North of England in Sheffield, Greater Manchester, Tees Valley and Liverpool.

Further planned sessions focus on how best to support the retention and development of a highly skilled workforce, and how the use of Enterprise zones, the plans for retention of business rates, and improving transport infrastructure could help businesses to expand and boost local job opportunities.

The conference will also be an opportunity to discuss foreign investment in the region, and how foreign direct investment projects could help boost the Northern economy in terms of increased jobs, economic activity and tourism.
