techUK responds to UK Government’s Export Strategy Paper

techUK’s Head of International Trade, Simon Spier, responds to the Department for International Trade’s new Export Strategy Paper.

“The UK digital sector is one of the UK’s export success stories. Digital exports consistently outpace exports from the economy as a whole and are only set to grow as our economy digitises.  The Government’s new Export Strategy is a positive step to help support that growth.  It rightly recognises the need to support the businesses of the future and the value that ecommerce and digital trade can bring to every part of our economy.

“techUK particularly welcomes the decision to create a single digital platform for exports through great.gov.uk and to put export finance at the heart of the effort to help businesses explore new markets.  The strong intentions of the strategy will have to be matched by further action to build in-country experience, support the free flow of data while maintaining data protection standards and enabling the mobility of people to markets in order to service contracts. Building our export base must be viewed as a long term project that can benefit the entire UK economy and so this strategy should rightly be treated as a starting point, not a destination.”
