An informal networking event for exporters, international service providers and those interested in accessing new markets overseas.

Whether you are already involved in international trade or considering expanding into new markets, Global Business Network offers a unique informal environment to share experience and expertise.

• Learn more about markets and successful strategies by talking to other exporters
• Form relevant connections across the globe
• Hear the latest initiatives and meet those that can help to support your international trade activities
• Obtain export documentation advice from the Chambers’ in-house international trade team.

This month we will be welcoming a representative from the Department for International Trade who will explain the documentation requirements when exporting to Turkey and how the EU and Turkey are linked by a Customs Union agreement, which came into force on 31 December 1995.

• EU exports to Turkey are dominated by machinery and transport material, chemical products and manufactured goods
