As the 2015 Rugby World Games comes to the region, local businesses in the West Midlands have been encouraged to pursue trading partnerships with countries in the Commonwealth. Given that both South Africa and Australia will be playing at the games, this free event is a perfect opportunity for businesses to learn of the benefits and challenges of trading within the Commonwealth region.
Hosted by the UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), the event promises to be to give a fascinating and meaningful insight into the many opportunities West Midlands businesses can grasp by trading with these countries – with a focus on local business exporting to;
- South Africa;
- New Zealand;
- and India
The event will be held at Birmingham’s very own Aston Villa Stadium on 16th September. Tickets are available here until 11th September.
