Turkish companies to find suppliers with United Kingdom’s free matching service
ISTANBULThe United Kingdom government will provide a free matching service to help Turkish companies find British suppliers in line with economic and trade promotion campaigns, UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) said in a written statement on Jan. 19.
“This U.K. government service has already helped companies in Turkey to develop their businesses and we will be helping many more businesses in the coming years. The U.K. has a wealth of experience in healthcare, technology and the creative industries sectors and is open for business. Whatever your business need, by registering for this world-leading service, the U.K. can answer your call,” said British Ambassador to Turkey Richard Moore.
By registering, companies are able to outline products or services they need and the U.K. government will match them with the right British businesses.
Health, technology and creative companies that register their details before April 1 will not only benefit from connections with leading British businesses but will also have the chance to attend the International Festival of Business 2016 in Liverpool as part of a bespoke trade delegation, according to the statement.
There have been over 80,000 responses from British companies to overseas business opportunities in the last two years, and there has been a year-on-year increase of 95 percent, showing the U.K. as a world-leading hub very much open for business, according to the statement.
“With a network of experienced companies across all sectors, the U.K. government’s free matching service is enabling businesses from Turkey to benefit from world-class products and services,” it added.
