Business Growth through Export
|Event:||Business Growth through Export|
ACCA Cymru Wales Business Insight Event in partnership with Grant Thornton
Focusing on the business opportunities that export offers we are bringing together experts on export to give advice on the programmes that are available for businesses to utilise the finance options to fund them and to hear first-hand experiences from a businessman who has successfully grown a garage sized brewery into an award winning brewery exporting worldwide.
Grant Thornton UK is delighted to co-host this export event with the ACCA in South Wales and is looking forward to hearing the views of the panellists, its clients and the ACCA members in attendance.
With the UK coming perilously close to its third recession in five years, the importance of private and public sector commitment and investment in export success, to ensure the viability of Welsh and UK businesses and to secure a return to sustained periods of GDP growth, cannot be understated. Grant Thornton works closely with its clients to support them in developing their respective export markets and adding material value through an international network of firms across 100 countries. Grant Thornton International, of which Grant Thornton UK is a member, was recently awarded the International Accounting Bulletin's Network of the year 2013.
