An infographic bringing to life BT’s international report, “The art of connecting global business”. 1150 business decision makers based in 13 regions around the globe were surveyed. The report explores the reasons for international expansion, which markets are desirable and why, the effects of being a ‘digital first’ economy and
barriers to expansion.

The survey, carried out by international market research agency Vanson Bourne on BT‘s behalf, interviewed companies with over 100 staff in the process of, or
considering, international expansion.

They are based in: UK, Benelux, France, Germany, South
Africa, Spain, UAE, Brazil, China, Hong Kong, India, Singapore and USA.

The art of connecting global business is being launched to mark the opening of the International Festival of Business,
one of the biggest business events of 2014, of which BT is an official partner.
