The British Exporters Association (BExA) is an independent national trade association representing the interests of the export community and exists as a lobbying, promoting, educating and networking organisation for UK exporters and associated services providers.
Established in 1940 as the National General Export Merchants Group, it became the British Export Houses Association and then in 1988 adopted the name of British Exporters Association when it recruited manufacturing companies as members.
BExA is a not-for-profit and non-party political organisation that’s led by our members, for our members.
BExA is a valued contributor to, and is engaged with, many Government departments and committees to drive export policy forward. These include the Department for International Trade, UK Export Finance, the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, and Houses of Parliament Select Committees.
