David Duguid – 2020 Comments on Global Trade

The comments made by David Duguid, the Minister for Scotland, on 7 October 2020.

The UK Government is committed to supporting Scottish businesses to trade globally.

We encourage businesses to work with our world-leading credit agency, UKEF, and take advantage of export finance support to bolster their exports worldwide and strengthen their position on the global stage.

Through the Trade Hub in Edinburgh, businesses will be able to utilise UKEF, as well as the UK Government’s global networks, expertise and influence.

Scottish produce is world famous and will benefit from new global trade opportunities once the EU transition period ends. UKEF has the potential to provide a real boost to exporters in Scotland, and every corner of the UK.
