We seem to forget sometimes that we are a very creative bunch. We generate great exports across drugs, medical equipment, music, games, engineered components and chip design (just mentioning a few).
Underneath it all is a large range of small supporting businesses covering strategy, design, IT support, parts engineering and logistic services. The shame is that we don’t seem to pull it all together very well. We become too locally focused.
I have worked with a lot of manufacturer/exporters over the years and when it works right, it works well. As SME businesses, maybe we should be asking ourselves, “What services & products could I be providing to aid the process? ”
We have reduced our trade deficit for the first time in a decade. I want to help that continue. http://tinyurl.com/cnylfp7
Let’s make “made in Britain” a great term again.
