Anne-Marie Trevelyan will today launch International Trade Week designed to encourage firms to think globally. Speaking yesterday, she said: “There has never been a better time to export.

“I want this International Trade Week to be a catalyst for businesses to sell to new markets and take advantage of the trade deals we are negotiating.”
