Manifesto 2019 - Getting the right deal for UK exporters
The Sponsors' Alliance is preparing its 2019 manifesto.
In particular, we shall be asking whether the Department for International Trade's export and investment services are fit for purpose and sufficiently resourced? We shall be suggesting a whole raft of measures to help SME companies to export or develop in new markets. We shall also be urging Government to review the real effectiveness of GREAT campaign internationally.
The Sponsors' Alliance continues to campaign for nationally run and well thought-out schemes to give companies support where it is most needed. With this in mind, we expect to question the logic of DIT's new insistence that 75% of all TAP grant funding should be channeled to companies with a turnover between £83k and £5m. Surely we should be targeting all SME companies?
While our European and International competitors benefit from support far in excess of their British counterparts, we ask, is our government helping or hindering exporters?
