CIA coordinates UK SME participation at major international chemical fairs such as CPhI Worldwide, Chemspec Europe and Speciality Chemicals America. 

CIA have been appointed by the Department for International Trade (DIT) Challenge Partner - as such we access government financial support to help you with costs associated with your company participating in overseas trade events. We continue to work with DIT to ensure that a robust framework of trade remedies are in place to coincide with the UK leaving the EU and that companies better understand Rules of Origin regulations to ensure that you can access preferential tariffs when exporting your products to the EU and third countries.
