Anne-Marie Trevelyan – 2021 Comments on Revelation 90% of UK Small Businesses Aren’t Exporting

The comments made by Anne-Marie Trevelyan, the Secretary of State for International Trade, on 4 December 2021.

From the high street to the web, small businesses are at the heart of our economy. It is great to see so many are reaping the benefits of exporting and we want to see them go even further.

Just 1 in 10 small businesses currently export, so we’re boosting our support to give them direct, tailored advice to help them on their exporting journey. Many of these businesses are in prime position to take advantage of the trade deals we are negotiating, and can play a vital role in helping the UK reach our Race to a Trillion.
