What we're doing on the export campaign
The Trade Access Programme (TAP) and Trade Challenge Partners
TAP – the mechanism which provides funding to help exports attend exhibitions – has become increasingly delayed and confused. It currently does not meet either the industry’s needs or help to meet the government’s export targets. The BFC is determined to keep up the pressure on the government to make export support more fit for purpose.

Export Event October 2016
Leading members of the furniture industry met with the Minister of State for International Trade and other MPs and Peers on 11th October to discuss investment in developing export markets.
They were attending the Export & Growth Event at the House of Commons, organised by The British Furniture Confederation (BFC) and sponsored by Stephen McPartland MP, Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Furniture Industry Group (APPFIG).
Campaigning For The UK Furniture Industry
The British Furniture Confederation has an ongoing policy to engage with government on a wide range of activities affecting the furniture industry, either in accordance with our strategic focus or in response to government initiatives and announcements.
