DIT launches online tool for international investors

07 Jun 2019

The Department for International Trade (DIT) has launched an online tool to help potential international investors set up and expand their operations in the UK.

The new tool, termed the UK Investment Support Directory, enables international investors to connect with a range of businesses across the UK. The directory allows potential investors to find an expert in their specific industry or region. They are also able to source the business and language expertise they require.

Experts listed in the directory include those in the accountancy, law, consultancy and recruitment industries, amongst many others. Once selected, businesses will offer a free one-hour consultation to discuss the potential investor's needs.

According to the DIT, the UK Investment Support Directory has been created to make information about the investment process 'more accessible', and is part of a wider initiative to 'generate more foreign direct investment in the UK'.

Graham Stuart, Minister for Investment, said: 'The launch of the new UK Investment Support Directory is one of many ways in which the DIT is helping to drive investment to every corner of the UK. We hope this new directory will be an invaluable resource for investors thinking of setting up operations in the UK.'
