International export business support

We're working in partnership with Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce (HCoC)  to identify and work with Dacorum-based companies who have the potential to begin exporting or those who currently export and are interested in expanding into new markets.

HCoC has developed a range of activities, including webinars, one-to-one advice, tailor-made training courses, access to the British Chambers of Commerce Global Business Network, and online trading platform CONNECTS, all of which have been carefully planned to ensure companies receive the best possible advice, guidance, and training.

HCoC can, using a variety of tools, knowledge and expertise, be of great assistance in helping companies achieve their goals and help guide and advise accordingly. In 2021, the HCoC International Trade Department assisted local companies in exporting goods to the value of £600 million.
