eNglaNds North West oPeN for BUsiNess iN asia

Asian economies are the future engines of growth and they are vital for the long-term prosperity of exporters from Englands North West. There cannot be future prosperity without Asia which looks set to drive growth for much of this century. It should, therefore, not be seen as a threat but as an opportunity for British companies in almost all commercial sectors. Equally, doing business in Asia is not just for large multi-nationals; small companies that invest the time can also reap rewards. UK Trade & Investment are here to help North West companies maintain and improve upon that growth, providing a range of services for everyone from new and inexperienced exporters to high growth research and development focused companies. Our UKTI North West team provides additional specialist expertise on developing business links in the Asia Pacific region. Our visit takes us to Thailand and Indonesia where there are opportunities for UK exporters in most sectors, particularly in oil and gas, education and training, information and communication, environment, Aerospace and Aviation services, Healthcare and medical, engineering and consumer goods. Those of us that have been involved in international trade for some time need little persuasion about the benefits of doing business in Asia, and I am delighted to be visiting Bangkok, Jakarta and Bandung, working closely with friends and partners, to help companies explore the opportunities and achieve their trade goals in Asia.

The Hoshin companies are engaged in the collection, interpretation and dissemination of information, utilising a proprietary software. Often this information is used by Government Agencies to support economic development. In Eastern Indonesia, Phil has been using information to underpin feasibility studies for clean energy production, capitalising on the opportunities for Clean Development Mechanisms (CDMs). Across Indonesia Hoshins web based surveying software is used as an inexpensive alternative to traditional market research techniques. We would like to meet economic development officials wanting to explore how CDMs could provide the capital to underpin further investment. We are also keen to meet with market research agencies that would like to develop web-based surveying techniques.
