Northern Powerhouse

With a GDP of almost £350bn, the economy of the Northern Powerhouse is equivalent to being the 21st largest in the world.

Spanning the north of England and including the cities of Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle, and Sheffield, the Northern Powerhouse is united in delivering a wealth of world-class expertise and business talent.

Businesses based here export £60bn of goods annually to every corner of the globe, yet there remains massive potential for future international growth.

It was the birthplace of the industrial revolution – the Northern Powerhouse laid the foundations for the world we know today – and the Department for International Trade is providing the expert support businesses need to tap into a world of opportunities to once again fulfil their global potential.

The abundance of expertise across the Northern Powerhouse is in high demand around the world and, by working together, we can transform the local economy and create a more prosperous future.

DIT is delivering a series of international Trade Missions, Export Taster Visits and dedicated Trade Adviser support to help Northern Powerhouse companies maximise their export potential.

For businesses which are new to export we have developed a series of Export Taster Visits. The visits are great for businesses wanting to explore overseas markets without having to use lots of their resources for an international exhibition. Businesses will be able to network with international professionals and receive assistance from an International Trade Adviser before, throughout and after the visit. The visits are subsidised, however there will be a booking fee depending on the destination.
