New programme to help more Welsh firms export globally

A new programme to help Welsh firms who have never exported before to sell their products in new international markets is being launched by Wales’ Economy Minister, Vaughan Gething.

The New Exporters Programme, which is one of the new support initiatives being introduced as part of the Welsh Government’s export action plan, will support companies who have either never exported before or have exported intermittently, to sell their goods and services around the world.

Ten companies from a range of sectors across Wales are being recruited to the programme, which will last around 10 months. They will receive intensive support to develop their capacity and capability for exporting, helping them to become regular exporters.

The support will be focused on exporting to Ireland initially, which will act as a starter market for the companies taking part.
