Fife International helps the Kingdom’s businesses realise their international ambitions, big or small. It is delivered by the Chamber and its membership partners, and also in collaboration with Fife Council, Business Gateway and Scottish Development International, and the Tay Cities International Partnership Group. It also integrates into the British and Scottish Chambers of Commerce international networks.
It will allow participants to start trading internationally for the first time or expand their existing international footprint. Fife International provides market intelligence, expert advice and insights from experienced exporters.
Fife International was formally launched in June 2019 with a lunch with the US Consul. Further training and events continue to be hosted by Fife Chamber, with each focusing on the do’s and don’ts of trading with specific countries or regions.
As part of Fife International, you can also take advantage of a suite of Fife and Tay Cities events that are planned over the next few months by our partners.
