Motion text

That this House recognises that export is key to sustainable economic recovery in the UK; welcomes the findings of the DHL/BCC Trade Confidence Index Q2 2011 showing that, whilst UK exporters are showing signs of strength, an uncertain economic environment is deterring exporters from investing and taking on more staff; recommends that the Government does more to ensure that products and services designed to help current and potential exporters are easy to access and understand; and believes the Government's growth agenda should include a focus on making UK trade and investment and the Export Credits Guarantee Department as effective as possible.
