If you're planning to export it's important to research the markets you want to trade in.
When you're doing research make sure you're accessing the most up-to-date publications and data. Look for:
- country reports produced by governments and banks, like the exporting country guides for every trading country on the GOV.UK website
- commissioned research reports
- articles in the business press
