Overview of the course:

The service sector continues to flourish in the UK, representing approximately 80% of the economy.    Service industries such as finance, project management, installation and maintenance and customer service continue to grow.  However, Pictureextensive advances in technological development, including the internet and cloud-based communication, have enabled information and related services to flow freely across country borders. It is not surprising, therefore, that the export of services is a growing trend in global markets.  In the UK, services account for almost 45% of exports. 

Is your company exploring export for the first time, or perhaps increasing export activity as part of a wider business strategy?  There are many positive benefits from selling to international markets –however there are some essential things you need to understand about the export process in order to do this both profitably and successfully.
