New Strategy Sets Challenge To Boost Exports To £1Trillion

The UK Government has launched a new ‘Made in the UK, Sold to the World’ plan to help businesses across the UK double exports and sell their world-class products around the globe.

The 12-point export strategy aims to give businesses the tools they need to become a nation of exporters and reap the benefits of our free trade deals.

DIT will also be expanding its Export Academy to roll it out across all of the UK including Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The academy will invite owners and managers of SMEs to access masterclasses, roundtables and networking events that help them overcome common challenges first-time exporters face.

Scottish Secretary Alister Jack said:

“From our world-famous food and drink, to our innovative digital sector and our thriving financial services industry, Scotland is already a hugely successful exporter.

“Our exciting Export Strategy now gives us an opportunity to take that success to the next level and become a true global trade powerhouse.

“Levelling up across the whole UK is at the heart of the strategy, and DIT’s dedicated Edinburgh hub will further ensure that Scottish businesses reap the rewards as we unlock export opportunities in every corner of the world.”
