star this property answer text <p>The current account deficit was 5.1 per cent of GDP in 2014. The trade balance has been broadly stable, while the UK’s net investment income has fallen, as weakness in the euro area has depressed the returns on the UK’s holding of foreign direct investment. Figures for Q2 2015 show that the deficit has narrowed, driven by an improvement in the trade and investment income balances. The Office for Budget Responsibility forecasts a narrowing of the current account deficit over the forecast period.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>On an annual basis UK exports continue to grow faster than UK imports, with ONS figures showing the overall trade deficit narrowing by £5.0bn, from £30.9bn in 2016 to £25.9bn in 2017. Internationally comparable data from UNCTAD shows the UK has the lowest trade deficit amongst G8 nations for energy goods, the third highest trade deficit for manufactured goods, and the second highest trade deficit for food products.</p><p>We recently launched the government’s new export strategy that sets out a new offer to help boost exports, informed by engagement with businesses across the UK. Our ambition is for the UK to be a 21st century exporting superpower, by raising exports as a percentage of GDP from 30% to 35%, towards the top of the G7 by this measure.</p> more like this
