The Department for International Trade (DIT) is responsible for promoting British trade across the world and ensuring the UK takes advantage of the huge opportunities open to us. We encourage and support businesses to export and help to identify key opportunities for their business. In the Yorkshire and the Humber region we have over 20 International Trade and e-Commerce advisers who support local businesses with face-to-face meetings along with dedicated and impartial advice.
