Future For International Trade Conference speakers advise on how to proceed in the current environment

The key out-take from the BHETA / Gardenex / PetQuip Future for International Trade Conference which took place on March 17th, was that while export was likely to outperform the home market in the coming year, it was vital for both importers and exporters to ensure they were not dependent on any one territory for either sales or supply chain.

Speakers, who included UK government insiders, successful companies exporting from the UK currently, market analysts, legal, financial and compliance advisors, concurred in advising both current and novice UK exporters on both big picture opportunities and perils and the detail of how to proceed successfully in the current environment.

Government announces ‘Calls for Views’ for design and intellectual property

Following its recent survey on the Designs Framework, the IPO has now also announced a major Call for Views on Design and IP, which is long overdue to support an important UK sector that is a USP on a world stage.

Design is a national and international asset for Great Britain and is also an impressive export sector. This is an excellent opportunity for designers/manufacturers and all those engaged who use design to innovate in many different sectors to examine whether current design laws are fit for purpose and respond by reviewing the existing Designs Framework.
