New website launched to help SMEs reduce trading risks abroad

UK business is benefitting from a new website detailing in-depth the business risks abroad in 90 different markets.

The ‘Overseas Business Risk Service’ has been jointly produced by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and UK Trade & Investment (UKTI).

The website profiles 90 different worldwide markets and covers all types of risks a business may face, including the chances of cyber crime, corruption and bribery and how to minimise these dangers.

Foreign Secretary, William Hague, said at the time of the site launch, “Many opportunities exist in markets overseas, but we know that risks can accompany opportunity”.
