International Trade Club Breakfast Meeting 9th July 2009

Event Date: 09 July 2009

It is increasingly important for exporting companies to have more than enough in their armoury to win overseas business and for many it is no longer just about having the right people, the right price, speedy deliveries or the best quality; increasingly its about extending credit terms.

With this in mind, the Club invited a number of key industry speakers from the world of finance to advise of the various credit options and solutions designed to encourage overseas buyers to place their business with UK companies, and not our overseas competitors.  The speakers shared their knowledge of flexible lines of credit, finance packages and clever credit management solutions, all to help exporters win more export orders and to retain and increase a better share of the profit.
