FSB concern about trade deficit PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 08 April 2016
Commenting on the UK trade deficit for February which now stands at £4.8 billion, Mike Cherry, National Chairman at the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), said:  “Since the start of this year, the trade deficit has widened significantly and this is of serious concern. Indeed, recent FSB research shows a worrying decline in export performance among small businesses.

“Small firms can make a significant contribution to the government’s target to increase the value of exports to £1 trillion and support 100,000 new exporters by 2020. But the government must ensure that the decision to refocus UKTI’s role and make exports a priority across government departments provides the right kind of support for those looking to export.”
