It’s great to have worked with the UK Government on the launch of a major programme today to help high-growth UK tech firms to expand in Asia Pacific.

The ‘UK-APAC Tech Growth Programme’ was announced by His Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for APAC Natalie Black CBE (pictured) and Investment Minister Lord Dominic Johnson at an event this afternoon as part of London Tech Week.

It will be delivered by international business development consultancy Intralink on behalf of the Department for Business & Trade and the Department for Science, Innovation & Technology.

Intralink’s teams will provide hands-on, on-the-ground support to help British innovators expand into 11 APAC countries: Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.

There’s so much opportunity for British firms in the region – and we were glad to handle the communications and media aspects of this important launch.
