An eye-catching 23-ton, 40ft-long Export Hub is in Deeside today to help businesses grow their markets overseas. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Welsh Government Economy Minister Edwina Hart is urging businesses to get on board and meet the export experts in Deeside where they can get advice on all aspects of exporting. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Companies of all sizes will get real-time export opportunities, face to face advice and expertise to support them at every step on their exporting journey. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Calbee UK is hosting the visit and the truck will be parked on its premises on the Deeside Industrial Park today between 10am – 2pm and will include a conversation with an expert from India. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Calbee, Japan’s largest manufacturer of savoury snacks, opened its new facility in the Deeside Enterprise Zone in June 2015 and was backed by business finance from the Welsh Government. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Encouraging businesses to take advantage of the opportunity, the Minister said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Exports are vital for the economy and in Wales account for more than £11 billion annually, delivering significant benefits for those businesses. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The decision to export can undoubtedly be a big step for many companies but exporting can deliver significant rewards and open up a new, world-wide market for companies’ products and services. The Export Hub roadshow is there to provide face-to-face advice and help and support Welsh businesses at every step of their export journey. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The Export Hub tour complements the Welsh Government’s extensive export support programme that includes overseas trade missions and visits. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“In the current financial year 93 companies have so far secured more than £72m in export business as a direct result of Welsh Government support. This is a £20m increase on the previous year – we want that upward spiral to continue and help more businesses benefit from exporting.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
