SCC WELCOMES UPWARD TREND IN MANUFACTURED EXPORTS

[ 05-10-2011 ]

Commenting on the release of official data showing that Scotland’s manufactured exports grew by 1.1% in the second quarter of 2011, Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:
 
“It is encouraging that the strong growth in Scotland’s manufactured exports at the beginning of 2011 has continued into the second quarter.  However trading conditions have become more challenging in the second half of the year, with economic uncertainty growing in the US and in the Eurozone.
 
“Exporting has been very important to our manufacturers in recent years as domestic demand has remained weak.  It is vital that we continue to diversify and identify new potential markets if this growth is to continue.  It is clear this has been recognised by our Governments at Holyrood and Westminster and we need them to create the right environment to allow our exporting businesses to continue to thrive.”
