The East Midlands International Trade Association (emita) is an independent association established to promote international trade and export expertise amongst the region's businesses.
emita seeks to complement and not duplicate the activities of other international trade and export organisations already in existence by providing a platform where the region's businesses involved in, or aspiring to, international trade can come together, learn together and help each other expand their businesses.
Sponsored by the UK Trade & Investment, and Nelsons Solicitors, emita attracts members from companies involved in all aspects of international trade including manufacturing, distribution, services, sport and the arts.
The aims of the East Midlands International Trade Association are defined in its Mission Statement
