SCC COMMENT ON SCOTTISH MANUFACTURED EXPORTS FIGURES

[ 14-10-2010 ]

Commenting on the publication of figures today which show that Scottish manufactured exports rose by 0.6% in the second quarter of 2010, Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said: 
 
“Whilst the confirmation that Scottish manufactured exports rose in the second quarter of this year, the Scottish Chambers of Commerce Quarterly Business Survey has shown that this growth may prove to be difficult to sustain in the second half of 2010.  Nonetheless, it is clear that our export markets are performing more strongly than the domestic market and this underlines the need for more Scottish businesses to look overseas for new trading opportunities.
 
“Scottish Chambers International’s Smart Exporter programme is an excellent example of the support available to businesses looking to trade internationally and we would encourage firms to take advantage of this opportunity to broaden their business horizons.”
