Why businesses should look beyond UK borders

Borders - Emerging markets with developing middle classes - SantanderCB

David Bird, Regional Director, Santander Corporate & Commercial, explains in an article for South West Business Insider that emerging markets with developing middle classes often create export opportunities for goods and services sourced from the West. But while each year a growing number of SMEs start trading internationally, there is room for more. The rewards are clear, he writes: firms who choose to export become 34% more productive in their first year. And help is at hand – with over 12,900 branches worldwide and 5 million business customers, Santander has the experience, expertise and reach to help businesses expand in international markets. 'Through a mix of free and paid for tools and services – some available to non-Santander customers – we can provide assistance at every stage of the five key steps of international trade, from starting your export journey, making new connections to growing and establishing your business overseas,' Bird explains.
