British companies are major players in the global export market, with 95% of UK manufacturers sending goods overseas.

In order to protect the economic wellbeing of communities across the whole of the UK and the 2.7 million manufacturing jobs the sector provides nationally, UK manufacturing needs even more export support so companies can compete in global markets as the UK begins its new journey outside the EU.

Top 10 fastest growing UK export markets

British manufacturers have always exported their high quality goods around the world and the new trade deals which are currently being negotiated should open up a myriad of opportunities. But making sure smaller businesses, which are often the most innovative, are able to take advantage of these new opportunities is key for the Government meeting its target of raising exports from 30% to 35% a portion of GDP. This means bespoke support which is simple to understand, and helping them to access true experts on the ground with the right local knowledge.
