International Trade Matters Ltd is honoured to have made the finals of the South West FSB awards

Following a successful submission by International PR specialist Kevin Kelway of Devon-based PR agency, Dorcas Media, International Trade Matters joins four impressive South West-based businesses on the short list for honours.

Summarising some of the services and achievements of ITM, the awards literature cites;

International Trade Matters provides one-to-one support for those directly involved with the exporting function and working in global markets. This involves working with teams of international experts giving professional advice, support, and working with British companies from all sectors, including a dedicated helpline, or advice on how to respond to queries. ITM works across the globe with compliance services and the internationalisation of support for UK companies post-Brexit, with marketing, PR, and many other services. They work with overseas customers looking to work and collaborate in the UK market-especially trade missions.

Managing Director, Linda Middleton-Jones said;

“This is recognition of the important service that International Trade Matters has brought to the regional economy. The support, advice and training we deliver to SW companies involved in export or import is vital to mutual sustainability, visibility and growth.”

Amongst a wealth of activity over the past year or so, Linda and her team have led a trade mission to Novorossiysk in Russia, provided a full programme of BCC accredited training courses for Devon & Plymouth and Dorset Chambers and represented the interests of South West businesses at the WTO world forum in Geneva.

The South West final takes place on Wednesday 26 February at Somerset County Cricket Club.
