About IMA Guides

About the Guides

IOE&IT together with IMA produce the internationally-recognised ‘Doing Business Guide’ series of trade publications.

The 'Doing Business Guides' are designed to advise and assist UK companies when looking to trade with and invest in opportunity-rich overseas markets. These are composed of market and industry sector-specific, multi-format print and digital trade reports, together with some of the internet’s most visited international trade websites.

These reports and guides are then distributed free-of-charge through the IOE&IT, IMA and British Governments global office networks - over 500 distribution outlets in total.

Further distribution takes place at global exhibitions, roadshows, conferences and trade missions, and IMA receives daily requests for additional copies of the guides from these networks and from businesses considering exporting.
