The Government announced late last year initiatives to boost more exports to raise the export value to £1 trillion by the mid-2030s. The vision is to connect Global Britain to the markets of tomorrow, strengthen bonds with our closest partners, including Commonwealth countries, and build UK exports in developing markets. Almost 90% of world growth is expected to be outside the EU over the next 5 years and the future of the global economy lies to the east in the Indo-Pacific. By 2030, 65% of the world’s 5.4 billion middle-class consumers are expected to be in Asia.

The full Export Strategy contains the following 12 steps to getting the UK to £1tn of exports a year:

  1. Boost the Export Support Service – a new single point of contact for exporters to Europe which has been funded with £45m
  2. New DIT offices in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and a second DIT HQ in Darlington, will offer support across the UK
  3. An Internationalisation Fund for SMEs in England will aim to grow international sales, and has £4 million of support to attend trade fairs
  4. Export credit agency UK Export Finance to expand its products and delivery network, making it easier for exporters to secure business overseas
  5. The government will focus on strengthening a joint approach, connecting governments and business through its global networks
  6. The UK Export Academy will expand to teach SMEs in all parts of the UK how to navigate the technicalities of exporting
  7. ‘Export Champions’ will help businesses learn from exporting successes through networking and peer-to-peer learning
  8. The ‘Made in the UK, Sold to the World’ campaign will champion the UK’s priority sectors
  9. A “bigger and better” UK Tradeshow Programme will be targeted to help SMEs exhibit at the world’s biggest tradeshows
  10. Exporting will be “at the heart of reforms to regulations, cross-government measures and regulatory diplomacy” to help exporting thrive
  11. International teams in more than 180 global markets will provide sector and market specific support
  12. New markets will be opened for export with new trade deals aiming to cover 80% of UK trade by the end of 2022, and broader work to remove market access barriers.
