Five Cumbrian businesses have been selected for a new government backed scheme aimed at increasing overseas trade.
The 'Export Champions' will offer help and advice to other businesses who have little or no experience of selling their goods or services to foreign countries.
The Cumbrian businesses are Tata Steel in Workington, Pirelli in Carlisle, Hidef Aerial Surveying Ltd in Cleator Moor and Playdale Playgrounds and Wax Lyrical in Ulverston.
UK Trade and Investment are behind the scheme, and their regional Director Clive Drinkwater will be at Tata Steel later to officially launch the scheme.
