National media coverage round-up: Export Ready report

This week, CIM and PwC launched a joint research report at the House of Commons on how marketing can drive exports post-Brexit. The report found that:

  • 70% of SMEs already exporting expect their exports to increase over the next three years
  • Just 4% are forecasting a decline
  • The firms that don’t export, just one in seven will consider doing so
  • 59% are “very unlikely” to consider it in the next three years
