The Department for International Trade (DIT) helps UK companies involved in the mining and construction equipment sectors export overseas. UK companies deliver solutions across the mining lifecycle, from initial scoping studies through all phases of feasibility and detailed mine design, and ultimately construction and operation. The UK’s construction equipment sector produces innovative products with around 75% of the output sold overseas, contributing £11 billion per annum to the UK economy. The UK is the leading global source of mining finance, providing liquidity for all sizes of projects and operations. Support is delivered by a broad range of professional services and consulting organisations that work to recognised global standards.
