Female entrepreneurs who trade overseas have the opportunity to have their achievements recognised in the 2004 BEXA – Women in Business Achievement Award.

The awards, sponsored by Government support agency UK Trade & Investment, the British Exporters Association and not-for-profit initiative Women in Business, aim to recognise and celebrate the importance and success of womenÂ’s export achievements in all sectors of international trade.

Judges will consider any businesswoman who can demonstrate success in international markets and an “ongoing commitment to international trade relations”.

Last year, the award went to Michelle Wienberg for her work in the “male-dominated markets in [the] male-dominated sectors” of oil and gas and engineering.

Sir Stephen Brown, Chief Executive, UK Trade & Investment said, “Trading in international markets makes a huge contribution to the UKÂ’s national wealth. Women play an increasingly key part in that success. Businesses that trade internationally tend to be more competitive and productive than those that donÂ’t. I encourage businesswomen from all sectors of the economy who are doing business internationally to enter this prestigious award.”

For more details about the award and to register for entry, contact Tara Culhane at Women in Business on 020-8943 3630. The closing date for entries is 15 April and the awards ceremony will take place on 19 May in London.
