A series of events, run by Forth Ports and supported by Scottish Enterprise, will provide essential information on the benefits of exporting and the key steps and processes that need to be considered as the hub completes a four day tour later this month, including a stop at Forth Ports in Grangemouth.

Businesses will also meet local trade advisers and learn about the ongoing support available from DIT and Scottish Enterprise.

Last year Scottish businesses exported over £28.8bn worth of goods, a rise of 19.2 per cent when compared to the previous 12 months according to the latest HMRC figures.
