How can SMEs win in changing markets?
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play an important role in the vitality of local economies both in the UK and US. As they look to expand their business, the latest developments in international trade – for example the prospect of a new trade deal between these countries – are likely to affect their growth plans. New technologies are also opening up new opportunities for SMEs and can help them to make their mark in the international arena. What are the challenges and opportunities of a new UK-US trade deal? How can SMEs win in changing markets and how can they tackle barriers to growth? What is the role of technology in strengthening trade relations?
This confidential editorial breakfast, organised by the Financial Times in partnership with Western Union, will bring together a varied group of UK and US policy makers, business leaders and analysts to understand the key obstacles to growth and to learn more about the practical solutions.
