Read about what the Business Insider has to say on the UK as a Science and Tech Superpower here.





“The UK is a science and technology superpower, consistently ranked among the top 5 most innovative nations globally with over 100 tech unicorns. The Science and Technology Superpower Showcase is an excellent way to demonstrate these strengths by promoting our highly innovative UK companies. My officials are organising a range of excellent activity from taking pavilions to global trade shows to running virtual meet the buyer sessions. What is more, we are working with our teams in embassies and consulates around the world to capitalise on our new Free Trade Agreements, opening the doors for UK tech to reach even more customers.”

Minister Mike Freer, Minister for Exports
