UK Directory of Exporters

The UK's 5 major high street banks have signed up to work with the new Department for International Trade to revolutionise the way businesses access international markets and International Trade. Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, NatWest and Santander are getting behind the government's drive to populate a new and unique Directory of Exporters.  

The Directory will link UK companies with contacts from around the world. Potential customers and buyers from global markets will be able to search for companies from across the whole of the UK which are ready to supply the products, services and skills they need. Hosted at, the directory will be supported by extensive international marketing activity to increase and sustain the ongoing demand for UK goods and services.  

Companies can access support to make them more competitive internationally and register to receive live export opportunities direct to their inboxes, helping them to secure new contracts overseas.
