26th October 2022 – Aid Funded Business Opportunities

This session in partnership with DevelopmentAid will provide an overview of aid-funded opportunities and how DevelopmentAid can help your business.

According to the UK Government, in 2020, Development agencies paid out over $161.2 billion in loans and grants. Countries use this money to buy the goods and services they need to design and carry out projects which further their development plans.

Projects tend to be long-term, and in a wide range of areas from agriculture to telecoms and infrastructure as well as services. They provide many export opportunities for UK companies, either as prime contractors themselves, or as suppliers of goods and services to prime contractors, or as part of consortiums.

Getting into the β€˜funded aid business’ can take a long time and serious commitment but equally, it can be highly rewarding. These bitesize sessions will cover some of the basics about funded aid projects and how British companies can get involved.
