Export First, developed by the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Northern Bank, ASM and A-amp;L Goodbody, has enlisted leading Northern Ireland companies to help small businesses achieve their export ambitions.
Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster launched the programme and said that while Northern Ireland's export performance has been improved over the last 10 years, there are still challenges ahead.
"The programme will act as a stepping stone for aspiring and new exporters to sell successfully overseas." she said.
