Export boost for all UK nations

UK Exports

Latest data from HMRC shows every UK nation recorded a greater value of goods exports in the 2018/19 financial year than ever before.

This highlights how the UK’s recent surge in exports is not driven by a single region, but is rather, a nationwide phenomenon as businesses tap into the growing demand for British produce across the globe.

In the 2018/19 financial year, goods exports from:

  • England grew at 3.0% to £251.9bn
  • Scotland grew at 12.9% to £32.8bn
  • Wales grew at 7.5% to £17.7bn
  • Northern Ireland grew at 4.4% to £9.0bn

The number of businesses across the country exporting has also increased, with 110,831 businesses exporting goods in the first quarter of 2019, 5,073, more than during the same period last year.
