Exporting is vital for the health of the UK economy. It builds a resilient economy, helps our businesses grow, protects jobs and boosts wages.
Every day UK businesses of all sizes are seizing opportunities in overseas markets, where there is a huge demand for UK goods and services. We want as many businesses as possible to take advantage of this.
Our long term ambition is to see exports grow as a proportion of GDP from 30% to 35%. Only businesses can lead this transformation, with the government’s Export Strategy laying the foundation for how it can help by encouraging, informing, connecting and financing businesses.
