cloudBuy at forefront of UK’s pioneering global eCommerce export growth

LONDON--()--cloudBuy plc, the world’s leading transactional cloud platform, today announced its Chief Operating Officer Jonny Holden has been appointed to the UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) e-Exporting Advisory Group. He will provide key industry insights to help shape the UKTI’s evolving e-exporting strategy, which aims to grow the value of UK exports through online channels to £68bn by 2020.

The inaugural meeting of the advisory group will take place later today with Lord Livingston, Minister of State for Trade & Investment, likely to be in attendance. This coincides with the official launch of the e-exporting strategy at the Autumn Fair, NEC, Birmingham.

The UK already leads the way in eCommerce, with its 200,000 plus online exporters currently exporting more than the rest of Europe combined. The internet contributes a larger proportion of the UK’s GDP than any other G20 nation and cloudBuy aims to rapidly increase the value of UK exports via its transactional cloud platform. This has already enabled a vast number of companies to do business online and expand internationally.

cloudBuy and the UKTI continue to closely collaborate to secure new business opportunities in Africa, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. In addition the companies are working closely on a series of roundtable events attracting C-level Executives across the United Arab Emirates, India, Singapore, Australia and Hong Kong, with cloudBuy Chairman Ronald Duncan undertaking a tour of the Asia region to identify suitable business partners.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with the UKTI on a number of initiatives to introduce our cutting-edge eCommerce software to these new markets,” said Jonny Holden, COO, cloudBuy. “As we continue to grow our global footprint, the relationship is helping to open new doors for our Spend Analysis and eMarketplace technology.
