Increasing studying abroard

Early exposure to foreign countries and peoples make it easier later in life to want to do business there. Yet proportionately fewer UK students spend time abroad than almost any other European country. Fewer UK SME export, too, than other European countries - just 1 out of 5 according to BIS. Encouraging our young people to experience other countries and make friends will, in the long term, encourage trade and exports. Places to start would be to promote the ERASMUS programme better in Universities and encourage more work experience placements outside the UK.
