Welsh Government multi-sector trade mission to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore
Welsh businesses with products ranging from organic yoghurts to camouflage face paint are set to visit Malaysia and Singapore as part of a Welsh Government trade mission.
Flying from Cardiff Airport with Qatar Airways, the trade mission will visit Kuala Lumpur before moving on to Singapore.
The trade mission includes sixteen companies from across Wales from the technology, oil and gas, construction, food and drink, creative and manufacturing sectors.
All are looking to strengthen existing ties and build new relationships in the South East Asian region in order to grow their businesses, with help and support from the Welsh Government’s export team.
Economy Secretary Ken Skates said:
“The Welsh Government is working proactively with companies across Wales to help them drive up the export arm of their business and I am delighted that we are supporting 16 companies.
This is a challenging and uncertain time for business as the UK prepares to leave the EU and it is more important than ever that Welsh companies work to build their trading relationships with businesses from across the world.
Of course this particular trade mission will also help our companies to capitalise on the global trade opportunities presented by the new daily flights between Cardiff and Doha.
Increased exports really can turn the fortunes of a business around I would urge any company looking to drive up this element of their business to contact the Welsh Government and find out more about the help on offer.”
The companies attending the trade mission to Malaysia and Singapore are:
- Atticus Digital
- BCB International
- Concrete Canvas
- CSCM Group
- Elmac Technologies
- Ecoprocess Engineering
- Flamgard Engineering
- Geo Smart Decisions
- Manutech Europe
- Rachel’s Dairy
- Safehouse Technology
- Vortex IoT
