Do you want to play a key role in shaping the delivery of international trade support across the Humber LEP?

Do you look at the business support landscape and think “why has no one done that?”

  • develop key partner relationships within the Humber Region to support export activity, supporting the take-up of export support services;
  • support the development (shape and structure) of events and seminars so that they deliver maximum benefit to SMEs that would benefit from a new regional growth service.
