BIS support for exporters is delivered through UK Trade and Investment which offers a range of support to companies looking to trade overseas. These include counselling on the right markets and the right people to deal with in those markets, advice on grants for trade missions or overseas trade fairs, setting up meetings, and generally helping to make business happen.

The Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) also provides specialist strategic and technical advice to help manufacturing small and medium-sized enterprises in England improve their productivity and grow.
