International trade – the regional patterns. Take the survey!

Insider is today launching its first international trade survey, in association with Ernst & Young.

We are aiming to understand regional patterns of exports at a time when the private sector is under pressure to lead an economic recovery.

Exports from the North West grew by 6 per cent in 2010 to almost £25bn with the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) economies driving the growth.

Through a series of questions, which will only take a few minutes to answer, we would like you to help us understand more about regional patterns of international trade.

The survey is designed to cater for all companies. Don’t worry if you don’t export, or are thinking about starting, we are aiming to understand the whole spectrum of attitudes in order to build a better picture of where we are and where we are going.
