SCC COMMENT ON SCOTTISH MANUFACTURED EXPORTS FIGURES
[ 01-07-2010 ]
Commenting on the publication of figures today which show that Scottish manufactured exports rose by 0.2% in the first quarter of 2010, Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:
“Whilst the rate of manufactured export growth has become shallower in the early part of this year, the continued upward trend is nonetheless welcome. This underlines the value to our economy in investing in our future exporting capabilities and Scottish Chambers are delighted to be working with the Scottish Government and others to improve the competitive position of our domestic businesses.
“It is clear that many businesses will continue to find trading conditions challenging this year, but three consecutive quarters of growth in our manufactured exports is an encouraging sign. Exporting has helped to sustain the Scottish economy during previous recessions and we must build upon our current growth pattern to ensure future success.”
