Central Procurement Directorate on behalf of its client Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI) wishes to invite tenders for the above named contract.
The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI) requires a Service Provider to carry out research into how companies from Northern Ireland can be encouraged to grow and diversify their exports into new markets.
The NI Economic Strategy prioritises export-led economic growth and has an overarching economic goal to “increase the level of exports and external sales”. However, in trying to secure greater export sales, it is unlikely that this growth can be solely achieved through a continued focus on existing export markets. NI therefore needs to look to diversify its export base and secure greater sales from fast growing economies. It is envisaged that the outcome of this research project will help to shape Invest NI’s export assistance and inform the development of the Enterprise Strategy.
