Scotland: 8% of the population but more than 13% of the exports and soaring!

Scotland’s underlying economic strength in exports growing 5 times faster than England

From HMRC yesterday but not making our MSM for some reason:

Scotland was the fastest growing region, with exports growing by 14.5% over the past year.

In the 12 months to Q2 2019, goods exports in:

  • England grew by 2.7% to £252.0bn
  • Scotland grew by 14.5% to £34.0bn
  • Wales grew by 6.8% to £17.7bn
  • Northern Ireland grew by 6.8% to £9.1bn

The data shows that the benefits of global trade is being shared amongst all parts of the UK (Aye right so it is), with businesses opening themselves up to new markets around the world. In the last year, demand for Scottish goods in China increased by 213.8% to £3.4bn while exporters in Northern Ireland saw overseas sales in the U.S. increase by 12.9% to £1.1bn.
