Export Communication Review

Helping you improve your business communications with both English and non-English speaking export markets.

Addressing global business communications, DIT’s Export Communication Review (ECR) can help you improve communications with both English and non-English speaking export markets by reviewing all aspects of communication with them.

What do I get?

  • Tailored and practical recommendations, summarised in a business action plan
  • Information about possible suppliers and costs to implement the recommendations
  • How-to guides, with more detailed advice on how to implement recommendations.
