MP launches best export competition

Borders MP Michael Moore is launching a competition to identify the Borders’ best export.

The winner will be showcased alongside the best exports of other UK parliamentary constituencies as part of the Exported by Britain Campaign.

Exported by Britain is a campaign jointly run by the All-Party Parliamentary Manufacturing Group (APMG) and the All-Party Parliamentary Design and Innovation Group (APDIG).

Mr Moore is asking for nominations for the Borders’ best export to be sent to him via twitter @MichaelMooreMP or email by March 20.

He will then select the most popular export which will be added to the Exported by Britain campaign map and the company will be invited to a reception in the summer.

Commenting, Mr Moore said: “Here in the Borders we have many fantastic businesses which export all across the world, so I would be extremely proud to nominate one to be showcased in Westminster.

“During my time as MP I have met with many businesses who are exporting into new markets and making the most of the opportunities which exporting brings.

“This competition is an exciting opportunity to showcase the Borders’ best exports alongside others from across the UK.

“I want to encourage people to send their nominations in whether it’s for a company they work for or just one they know of; the more the better!”
