A series of new export courses have been launched for Calderdale businesses as part of a campaign to rebalance the region’s economy through more overseas trade.

Ten courses cover issues including: exporting principals, documentation, payment methods and security, cultural etiquette, insurance and the delivery of products.

They have been updated to keep pace with changing international trade regulations.

Chamber International, Bradford, is running the “We Are International” campaign for Leeds City Region.

The campaign aims to bring £2.6bn of additional export earnings into Leeds City Region by 2018 and create thousands of new jobs.

Chamber spokesman Mike Strawson, said: “Growing demand for our courses is further evidence that Leeds City Region in particular is gearing up for a significant export drive.

“A great deal of interest has come from businesses in the Halifax area and we’re very keen that companies should take up this opportunity to attend courses.

“The courses enable businesses to respond more professionally to enquiries and to generate more overseas business so they can increase profitability, turnover, security and employment.”
