How can Britain double its exports?

Nov 16, 2021

Yesterday, at the Global Investment Summit 2021, ministers vowed that Britain can double its exports to show off the best of its business with a new ‘ground-breaking’ plan of action.

Anne Marie Trevelyan, the Secretary of State for International Trade of the United Kingdom, will reveal her monumental 12 point pain to boost commodity sales – from lamb, salmon and Scotch whiskey to cars, jet engines and the UK’s world-leading financial services.

According to the Government, these steps will help return Britain to its ‘glory production days’ where the world envied Belfast’s ships, Manchester’s cotton and Sheffield’s steel!

What are Britain’s basic export figures?

According to research, only one in ten firms in England sell their products overseas, and one in 20 in Scotland.

However, with the launch of the new campaign “Made in the UK, Sold to the World” to encourage businesses to explore international markets, the UK economy is on its way to seeing double exports.
