UK - Canada Transatlantic Trade Alliance

Event Date: 23 September 2010

East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce is very actively engaged in setting up a major UK-Canada Transatlantic Trade Alliance to provide access to major trading opportunities for companies in both the UK and Canada and international trade support too.

These are major trading opportunities for exporters to export goods and  services to Canada, set up agents, appointdistributors, manufacture under licence, or set up joint venture activities in a great export market that has long and favourable historical ties with the UK but shares a border with the USA.

For importers, UK agents and distributors, companies looking for make under licence agreements this is also a great opportunity. The UK is favourably looked upon as a preferred route for sending exports into Europe.

Many of the business customs, language and normalities are very similar. This is a growing country, rich in natural resources, has major potential to do business with, and is a great country to visit.
