interpreting and translation services

World Trade Centre Hull and Humber recently played host to a UK Trade & Investment ‘Doing Business in the Baltic States’ clinic. 
The event highlighted potential opportunities for businesses in the Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in the form of bespoke one-to-­one meetings with UK Trade & Investment’s overseas experts in these markets.
Ten businesses from across the region took advantage of the opportunity to meet with the UKTI international Commercial Officers with discussions across a wide range of sectors from logistics to clothing and from education to drinks.....

Indri Pallo, Director of Trade & Investment and Regional Trade Manager for UKTI’s Baltic's region who runs the trade teams in the three markets talked about the opportunities for UK businesses with aspirations to trade in these lucrative territories with support from Ringaile Saviciene from Lithuania and Sanita Bankava from Latvia.

Mica Vine, International business executive with Language is Everything said:

“The Baltic One to One’s at the World Trade Centre provided an excellent opportunity to gain advice and guidance.  The high calibre advisors were interesting and engaging, outlining key facts and expert knowledge that should be considered by companies considering targeting these markets.  The one to one will prove to be extremely valuable to Language is Everything as we expand our global network of expertise.”

David Lilley, UKTI’s International Trade Team Adviser Manager, commented:
“The Humber has a long standing relationship with the Baltic States which saw significant growth prior to the recent downturn with many local companies doing good business in these countries.  There was a sharp downturn in business as a result of the recession however the Baltic States have really bounced back with Estonia and Lithuania showing the fastest growth in the EU the Second Quarter and again offering export opportunities to local businesses.
On this occasion it was encouraging to note that the clinic appealed to companies from the wider Yorkshire region. The initial feedback from the companies attending the clinic was extremely positive and likely to lead to new export sales.”
