“The International Trade Club allows us great value access to a wealth of expertise and contacts in the field of export. Sharing experiences with like-minded exporters and the staff at East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce is a great way to increase our knowledge base and actively promote our business in the local area as well as further afield.”
