UK businesses embrace global demand

The Office of National Statistics have released data that confirms there is a continuing demand for UK goods around the globe. One example of this is seen in exports to India increasing at the fastest rate amongst the UK’s top non-EU trading partners.

Further figures also show the export of goods and services to non-EU trading partners in 2018 reached a high of £345.1 billion (India up 19.3 per cent, Japan 7.9 per cent, China 4.6 per cent, and Canada 4.2 per cent.)

Secretary of State for International Trade, Dr. Liam Fox, said: “Even with an increasingly challenging global economic outlook, these latest figures show demand for UK exports across the globe continues to grow and there is clear appetite for British products all around the world.”
