UK Water Capability Showcase
The Department for International Trade (DIT) recently hosted a ‘UK Water Capability Showcase’ event in London, at which the UK Water Partnership, UK Flood Partnership and British Water all came together along with British consultants and contractors to showcase the best of what the UK has to offer in water.
DIT has overall responsibility for promoting UK trade across the world and attracting foreign investment to our economy. The UK Water Partnership estimates there is a growing $500 billion global water market to meet increased demand and water security requirements. The aim of the event was to promote the UK Water offering to representatives of the DIT from 18 countries across the world. The event was centered on engaging with UK Embassy Commercial Officers in the areas that the UK’s expertise and supply chain is strong so that they can identify potential business opportunities in their respective posts.
The event showcased the best of what the UK has to offer in water and featured capability such as flood resilience, tunneling and urban water resilience.
