Benefits of Internationalisation

Why should British SMES go global?

  • Emerging and Developing Economies (EDEs) are expected to contribute to 60% of global GDP by 2030

  • 90% of purchasing power is outside the UK & EU.

  • There is a growing middle class with purchasing power across Emerging and Developing Economies.

  • In the digital age, we are more connected to the rest of the world than ever before and whether it be e-commerce or social media your business can reach customers instantly.
