International Trade

Swansea Bay Partnership sponsors and supports the work of The West Wales Exporters Association (WWEA).

WWEA is led by local businesses to identify opportunities in the global market and share these with the business community in the region through its networking events. At these events, experienced speakers and support organisations are on hand to provide advice and guidance if you are thinking of exporting. The programme of events is geared towards breaking into new markets or increasing market share, and they are planned to coincide with the Welsh Government’s Global trade mission programme.

The first event is free! Yearly membership includes free entry to all events at just £30. For Further information on becoming a member of the West Wales Exporters Association visit
