Why Export To Asia


British-made goods are in high demand in Asia. The research shows that, across the region, consumers are prepared to spend more on British goods because of their quality.


Asia's population and economies are booming. The region has the fastest-growing middle class in the world, with an increasingly disposable income.


Asia is an increasingly important destination for British goods, with UK exports to countries such as India and China growing rapidly.
