Selaine Saxby MP is leading a drive to bring free government support to more local firms in North Devon to help them take advantage of export opportunities and to tap into demand for British products from overseas by organising a series of events through 2021. 

In working with the Department for International Trade (DIT), as part of the Parliamentary Export Programme, this programme is available to help local businesses access the free support they need to boost their exporting potential. 

Selaine Saxby, MP for North Devon, said: "Helping local businesses survive and then recover from the pandemic is one of my top priorities. That's why I'm delighted to be co-hosting events with Mel Stride, MP for Central Devon, that can help save local jobs and give businesses in North Devon access to information, advice and finance to sell internationally. 

“I am determined to ensure that our area does not get left behind and whatever services are available are provided here, to help us get back on our feet after Covid. 

“The events I am organising are free and all a business has to do is register through the link in this article or my website.”

Whether a business is new to exporting, has exported in the past or is a current exporter, participating in the programme will equip them with the support and tools they need to begin or continue their exporting journey.
