Yorkshire & Humber exports rise

Exports from the Yorkshire and Humber rose 7.8% from 2017 to 2018, making it one of the best performing regions in the UK.

Exports of goods from England as a whole increased 2.1% to £248.6 billion for the same period.

Businesses have seen an increased appetite for UK goods from non-EU countries, with the number exporting to these countries in the last quarter rising by 1.3% to 49,900.

The most popular non-EU destination was the USA, where 20.2% of exporters sold goods to, Australia (7.7%) and Switzerland (7.6%).

In the final three months of 2018, the average value of goods exported in the UK per exporter was £780,000.

International Trade Secretary, Dr Liam Fox MP said: “The continued rise in British exports across the country highlights the true exporting power across all UK regions. This is fantastic news for British businesses, who should be encouraged by these figures to take advantage of the clear opportunities available for growing their business overseas.

“People from across the world want to buy British, and through our Export Strategy my department is fully committed to helping businesses make the most of international opportunities.”
