FPB welcomes export figures but remains cautious over the impact of Brexit PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 12 July 2017
The Forum of Private Business has welcomed today’s export figures but is remaining cautious over the impact Brexit will have of Britain’s export markets.

Analysis of the 2015 data shows that whilst the United States is the largest single destination for service exports, receiving almost £21bn and making up 21 per cent of total world service exports, the EU as an overall trading bloc accounted for just below £37bn, or 37 per cent of total exports.

Ian Cass, Managing Director of the Forum, said: “After we leave the EU there could be a negative impact on these export figures.

“The Government is quite rightly talking about new trade deals around the world after Brexit, but we need to consolidate what we have as well.

“At present we feel that the Government is not doing enough to ensure small and micro businesses are informed of the exporting opportunities, and is failing to give them the practical tools to be able to take advantage of these opportunities.

“Our ‘Get Britain Trading’ campaign asks the government to support businesses across the country as we seek to make the most of Brexit. We want to make sure that all those businesses that have the opportunity to develop through exporting are doing so. “
