IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING NCOV-19
Notice Date: 14th April 2020

The health and safety of our staff and contractors are of paramount importance. As such all ITC staff have been advised to work from home until the 15th of May and avoid all non-essential travel. This may reduce accessibility of staff via phone but, pending individual internet issues, most trade commissioners should be accessible via email. The Council’s IT infrastructure systems are redundant and we use tried and tested collaborative tools that allow full remote working for all staff and contractors.

All webinars, conferences and trade missions are temporarily paused and are being re-scheduled for August / September 2020. Final dates will be advised shortly.
All accounting functions and non-trade-related functions are temporarily paused for the home quarantine period.
