We are pleased to announce that FGV Cambridge Nanosystems was selected to be in the first cohort of UK SMEs to become CommonwealthFirst Export Champions on 7 July 2016.
The 27 CommonwealthFirst Export Champions have been selected based on their level of impact, innovation, ambition and ability to succeed across Commonwealth markets following an online application process. One hundred Export Champions will be selected over the next three years.
The companies range from sole traders to fast-growing members of the London Stock Exchange and from start-ups to Royal Warrant holders – picked from all regions of the UK and various business sectors including technology, manufacturing, fashion and food. The cohort represents the full range of ingenuity and quality that the UK has to offer the world.
By showcasing the success of the Commonwealth Export Champions, the programme will highlight the trade and investment opportunities for UK businesses across the Commonwealth – a free association of 53 countries, representing one third of the world’s population and fast growing markets including India, Australia, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, Nigeria and South Africa.
Anna Mieczakowski, our Chief Operations Officer, said: “We are delighted to be part of the first cohort of CommonwealthFirst Export Champions. The Commonwealth has always been an important market for our company and we look forward to building even stronger trade links between the UK and the family of Commonwealth nations and other important partners around the world”.
