The Department for International Trade (DIT) has launched the Security Export Strategy, which sets out how the Government will ensure that UK companies remain at the forefront of growing global demand for security exports and services. Published on 11th September 2019 it is aimed at growing UK exports for the security and fire sectors.
It builds on the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s (BEIS) wider Industrial Strategy and subsequent DIT Export Strategy launched last year. “This document mirrors the four themes of the Government’s wider 2018 Export Strategy and builds on the work of the previous security strategy from 2014. It sets out how we will encourage companies to export; provide information on how to sell overseas; connect them with potential buyers and partners overseas and finally ensure that they have access to the necessary finance to realise these opportunities.”
Coltraco Ultrasonics are honoured that as part of the strategy, showing how the UK Government supports exporters, the Portalevel® MAX has been featured (seen on page 17 included below).
