The Export Credits Guarantee Department (ECGD) is the UK's export credit agency and assists exporters and investors to do business overseas by providing insurance and guarantees against payment risks.


The Government’s White Paper on Trade announced in February that ECGD would be bringing out the following four new initiatives shortly to help UK companies to boost their exports:


·         A widening of the eligibility of the existing short term credit insurance policy,

      the Export Insurance Policy (EXIP);

·         A bond support scheme;

·         An export working capital scheme;

·         A foreign exchange credit support product.


Join us for this important afternoon seminar on Tuesday 17 May which will introduce you to the new products, highlight how these will assist you to develop your export activity and provide you with an overview of their key features.


Following on from our seminar in February, the afternoon will also offer an opportunity to find out more about the recently published Bribery Act guidance and the changes it will bring for your company ahead of 1 July, when the Act will now come into force. Explore what you need to do to protect your business and receive expert advice on the preparations you should have in place before the Act commences.


Don’t miss out on the practical support available to ensure you succeed in trading overseas and book a free place today!
