ISS helps German businesses enter the UK market

International Strategy Solutions (ISS) has just launched a new German landing page designed to help German businesses who may be looking to grow their export activities into new international markets such as the UK.

As with many other European countries, the German business community is ideally located to take advantage of some of the exciting opportunities that the UK economy has to offer.

Through the extensive research undertaken by ISS, the UK provides attractive business opportunities in the following sectors:

  • Construction – anticipated growth of 3.4% this year and 5.2% next year.  Driven by a demand for private housing, infrastructure and commercial work.

  • Services  sector –  the UK services sector accounts for 77% of the UK economy and has enjoyed consistent growth since 2012.

The UK economy is widely believed to be firmly on the road to recovery and growing at a very healthy pace.  The BCC (British Chambers of Commerce) has forecasted that UK economic growth will reach a seven year high in 2014.
