The Department of Trade Industry and Competition has decided to provide assistance to exporters primarily on a sector- or industry-specific basis. To this end the DTI has encouraged the establishment of Export Councils for the purpose of promoting exports from within definitive industry sectors. Indeed, the DTI provides both guidelines and financial assistance in the setting up of such Export Councils.
