§ Mr. Proctor
asked the Minister for Trade what measures are being taken by his Department and trading organisations and others to promote British exports to the 105W Republic of Chile; whether he expects the United Kingdom share of the Chilean market to show an increase in 1981; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Rees
[pursuant to his reply, 16 July 1982, c. 488]: The full range of BOTB services is available to assist exporters in this market. The BOTB is sponsoring 13 firms at the FISA international trade fair in Santiago 27 October-7 November 1982. The United Kingdom share of the Chilean market in 1980 was 2.1 per cent. It is not yet possible on the basis of available figures to make any reliable estimate of our market share last year.
