The UK-ASEAN Business Council (UKABC) is delighted to welcome two new ASEAN Export Specialists to the growing team. Geoff Charlesworth and Paul North will bring their experience of exporting and knowledge of ASEAN to businesses throughout the UK.
Our two ASEAN Export Specialists will be working with UK companies to ease their passage into one of the most exciting export destinations in the world – Southeast Asia. They will be able to match UK companies to ASEAN markets and work with UKABC’s in-market partners – the uniquely placed British Chambers of Commerce in ASEAN – and will allow us to better support UK companies on their export journey.
Paul was previously with the Department for International Trade (DIT) in the East Midlands, developing a global network of business-led partner organisations to offer a wide range of high-quality support in key markets, particularly Southeast Asia, for exporting companies. He brings with him more than 30 years’ experience of working and developing business in International markets.
Keen to get started, he said “There is the demand for UK products in ASEAN and brand Britain has never been stronger! Working closely with Geoff, our roles will be to match the ASEAN demand with UK supply”.
Geoff was an International Trade Adviser for DIT. He has a wealth of experience in worldwide trade and business development spanning many sectors, combined with first-hand knowledge and experience of doing business in the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Australia and the USA.
He is excited to showcase Southeast Asia to UK companies and said: “A group of 10 dynamic countries with incredible statistics to back up the opportunities. That’s not the whole story though – Southeast Asia has an immense energy about it, amazing food, culture, history and with a population of 630 million – as an exporter – can you afford not to look at ASEAN?”
