Exporting Is Great

DIT is the government department responsible for promoting and financing international trade and investment and championing free trade.
Exporting is vital for the health of the UK economy. It builds a resilient economy, helps our businesses grow, protects jobs and boosts wages.
Every day UK businesses of all sizes are seizing opportunities in overseas markets, where there is a huge demand for UK goods and services. We want as many businesses as possible to take advantage of this.
Our long term ambition is to see exports grow as a proportion of GDP from 30% to 35%. Only businesses can lead this transformation, with the government’s Export Strategy laying the foundation for how it can help by encouraging, informing, connecting and financing businesses.
