The Prime Minister herself sends parliamentary congratulations for the winning of Best Job Creation and Business Development project at this year’s World Chambers Competition in Sydney.
The project aims to maximise International Trade to benefit businesses in the South West of England. The award is in recognition of achieving almost £0.5bn worth of additional export sales and creating nearly 4000 new jobs in the region.
The launch of the International Trade Centre was instrumental in helping partners in Export Growth; Business West to achieve a 40% increase in website traffic, 250% more potential first-time exporters using its services, and its social media channels saw more engagement than ever before.
In the letter Mrs May acknowledged the magnitude of the win, writing,
‘With over 50 applications from 27 countries, the fact that Business West Chambers of Commerce was only one of five Chambers to be honoured at this prestigious event makes your award even more special.
Please accept my congratulations on your win and my best wishes for many more years of success.’
An invitation to go attend the House of Commons to accept another award in recognition of Business West’s International Trade services from the Enterprising Britain Award (EBA).
The sky’s the limit for the International Trade Centre!
