UK’s £1 trillion export target by 2020, says trade minister                                              

LONDON: The Government’s ambition of doubling UK exports to £1 trillion by 2020 is a “big stretch”, Lord Maude admits.

He said UK Trade and Investment, the Government’s trade arm, was “too insulated” from the rest of Government and must work more closely with other departments to promote UK Plc abroad.

Various trade bodies and business groups have in the past warned the Government is in danger of missing the target set by George Osborne in 2012.
