International Panel Webinar: Infrastructure & Water - The work of the Department for International Trade

The International Panel welcomes you to this webinar by The Department for International Trade (DIT). The DIT is still a relatively new Department having only been formed in July 2016 – it has a number of key challenges including supporting and driving international exports, foreign direct investment and negotiating trade deals.  As part of DITs Export strategy, DIT has a dedicated team focused on helping UK companies in the Infrastructure Sector to win business in priority International markets.  This is a key priority and there is a dedicated team in the UK working with new Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioners, with Ambassadors and other DIT staff based globally, to identify opportunities for UK companies.  

 

We are pleased to welcome Eddie Malone, Water Sector Manager at the Department of International Trade (DIT), to talk through the DIT’s work in water and infrastructure.  As part of the DIT’s Export strategy, DIT has a dedicated team focused on helping UK companies in the Infrastructure Sector to win business in priority International markets.  This is a key priority and there is a dedicated team in the UK working with new Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioners, with Ambassadors and other DIT staff based globally, to identify opportunities for UK companies.

•    Support and encourage UK businesses to drive sustainable international growth.
