The Winter and Spring are very active times for international business in the UK with numerous major industry events and sector activities taking place. The Department of Business, Tourism, Culture and Rural Development is seeking expressions of interest from Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) businesses and organizations wishing to explore business growth in the UK markets.

The UK is a gateway for access the wider European markets (EU Population 500 million). The Province is working with our national and international partners to offer trade and business development supports for market entry. The UK business sectors of particular interest to NL include: education, ICT/Data, aerospace & defense, oil & gas, ocean technology, food and beverage, culture, and renewable energy.

Similarities in the business environment such as language, political structure, cultural and legal systems support ease of doing business and facilitate linkages to the markets of Continental Europe. Many events take place in London and the year around direct flights from St. John’s facilitate business access. Forbes ranking of London as “… the most influential city in the world” is based on access to capital, levels of foreign investment, corporate headquarters, ease of air travel, financial strength, technology, media power and diversity.

For more information or to discuss interest in the UK, contact Allison Dancey at (709) 729-7053.
