Santander to become Chamber's International Trade Patron

Santander has become the first International Trade Patron of Plymouth and Devon Chamber of Commerce. The bank will support export businesses by raising awareness of International Trade support and encouraging exports as a means for business growth, which are key priorities for the chamber. The role of patron will see Santander partake in regular speaking slots at the popular Plymouth International Trade Club events and communicate export news and opportunities to businesses through a variety of events and activities. Julie Ounsworth, international director for Santander Corporate and Commercial Banking, said: 'Plymouth has a long and rich history of international trade, and by working together Santander and Plymouth and Devon Chamber of Commerce can drive further growth for businesses in the region. 'One of the main challenges British small businesses face is getting their products to market overseas. This is where Santander can help, in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce. 'Our online Trade Portal helps businesses identify the best international markets for their products and can help them establish relationships with new buyers as well as negotiate some of the complex issues, such as legal and tax implications when exporting or setting up subsidiaries overseas.' David Bird, Santander corporate and commercial regional director for the South West, added: 'I've been working with SMEs in the South West for a long time, and you can really sense their desire to seek international opportunities. With the chamber we can provide a huge amount of support for these ambitious companies.'
