NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

Where: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales
Contact: Allison Dancey, (709) 729-7053

The Department of Business, Tourism, Culture and Rural Development is now planning activities for 2016 and would like to hear from businesses and organizations wishing to explore or further develop the markets of the United Kingdom (UK).

The Province is working with national and international partners to offer trade and business development supports for market entry to the UK. The UK is a market with a population of 60 million people. The Canadian High Commission, London offers additional support, and manages the Canadian Technology Accelerator in London.

The UK annually hosts a high number of major trade events, conferences and sector activities. The direct flights from St. John’s to London and Gatwick, or through Dublin, facilitate convenient travel.

Forbes’ ranking of London as “… the most influential city in the world” is based on access to capital, levels of foreign investment, corporate headquarters, air access, technology, media power and diversity. Similarities in the business environment, language, legal systems, political structure and culture also facilitate Canadian business in the UK markets.

For more information on growing your international business in the UK, and to learn more about upcoming activities for 2016-2017, contact Allison Dancey at (709) 729-7053 or allisondancey@gov.nl.ca.
