Scottish manufactured exports down

Tags:


SCOTTISH manufactured export volumes fell by 0.4 per cent in the third quarter of 2015, and overseas sales of the key drinks sector, which includes Scotch whisky, were flat, official figures have shown.

A 15.7 per cent tumble in exports by the metals and metal products sub-sector played a significant part in the overall fall in the Scottish manufacturing sector’s overseas exports during the three months to September.

However, the Scottish Government figures show that food exports increased by 17.3 per cent quarter-on-quarter during the three months to September. This marked a continuation of the strong performance by Scotland’s food producers since 2013, achieved in the face of challenging economic conditions and pressures arising from sterling strength against the euro.

Exports of the engineering and allied industries rose by 2.4 per cent during the three months to September. This was driven by increases in mechanical engineering and electronics exports.
