Business in the UK + Tips on the Tricks & Traps
Dyer, responded to the concern of cultural challenges of
a US company expanding into Europe. The first stop for most companies
is the United Kingdom. Whilst there are fewer cultural differences
with the UK than other “Euro” countries, there is some handholding
necessary…even with market research. 5/3/04

& Telecom Collaboration

sited the differences, similarities and challenges in Telecom between

the Director-General UK
Trade & Investment in the United States, Sir Thomas Harris,
"In an increasingly changing world, businesses that fail to exploit
opportunities overseas are at a competitive disadvantage. Evidence on
both sides of the Atlantic shows that firms which internationalize have
higher rates of productivity, better overall performance and less chance
of failure. The old divisions between traditional exporting and direct
overseas investment are breaking down. New forms of partnering are emerging
that will enable companies to develop overseas markets more effectively
than ever before.
To reflect these
global changes, the UK government has launched a new business support
organization, UK Trade and Investment, which incorporates the best elements
of Invest.UK and Trade Partners. UK Trade and Investment offers new
and better ways to help British and American companies expand what is
already the worlds most dynamic bilateral business relationship."

Monica Darnbrough, the Director of the UK Bioscience Unit has
Colorado under microscope. There's a great deal riding on this potential

that precedes a trip by Governor Bill Owens and other business people
to England and Scotland. Bio Cluster here we come.
