‘Export and grow’ call by MP Jake Berry
4:49pm Thursday 3rd January 2013 in News
ROSSENDALE and Darwen MP Jake Berry has encouraged firms to ‘export for growth’.
With exports during the past year in the North West reportedly valued at more than £26billion, Mr Berry said he was keen for businesses to get into the market.
Mr Berry said one of the Government’s ambitions was to double UK exports to £1trillion by 2020 and get 100,000 more companies exporting.
He said: “We in East Lancashire have a proud history in manufacturing and I believe that it is right that our quality businesses should be recognised not only on the national stage but internationally.”
Events will be held in February with talks and practical help by experts and local business leaders.
