Updates from the Trade Services Team

The end of Q1 for the Trade Services Team brought numerous successes in support of UK Trade . It was a great pleasure for the team to be able to deliver such a variety of activity including Trade Missions , Consultation and Research projects to our first intimate event showcasing UK Dairy producers to key decision makers in Singapore .
The delegation of the DIT South West ‘ Tech for Good Trade Mission ’ held in January and the Northern Powerhouse Trade Mission held in March , continues to generate interest from relevant parties within the business communities and all delegates are still open to expressions of interest in meeting them . ( Delegate Profiles : ‘ Tech for Good ’, NPH ).
As the team leads on the Education Trade support for the UK DIT , in February , we were very proud to launch our Education & Learning Hub which aims to bring together all the UK education propositions in Singapore and provide a high profile platform for all providers within the network to share news , highlight specific offerings and create collaboration with industry . The chamber will continue to develop this hub as further offerings arise for UK Education in Singapore , but please reach out to the Trade Team should you wish to understand how you can get involved .
The UK Agriculture and Development Board have also kept the team busy as we delivered two projects showcasing their Dairy and Meat producers who currently import to Singapore abut are seeking further routes to market . We continue to plan additional activity for the AHDB which will provide Britcham members with multiple opportunities to try out these goodies for yourself !
Finally , we continue to support companies directly with our Business Matching services with particular success in facilitating the export of Food & Beverage items , and Consumer Goods into Singapore from the UK . Products such as Pack ’ d smoothies , Choc in Play and Planet Organic can be found in Little Farms , whilst Wiston Estate wines are now available through our Britcham member , The British Beverage Company .
