The Department for International Trade’s (DIT) Export Strategy, published 21st August, set out how government will support businesses of all sizes to make the most of the opportunities presented by markets around the world. In line with this strategy, DIT is significantly boosting its support for UK space exports. We have launched high value campaigns targeting the US and Indian markets and are working with UK companies to support their exporting activity through our Space Sector team, International Trade Advisers and overseas DIT network. DIT also co-chairs with industry the Space Growth Partnership’s Space Exports Group and Space Exports Forum.
