Help with foreign visitors

UK BUSINESSES exhibiting at next years Royal Show will be able to claim government aid to help finance inward missions by foreign buyers to boost international business links.

Exhibitors will be given support for up to five overseas visitors, including 60% towards air fares and contributions towards accommodation and meals.

The scheme is being co-ordinated by the Royal Agricultural Society of England in association with the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and Industry and is supported by the DTI. Contact Andrew Waters (01203-696969). &#42
