Scottish exports to the rest of the UK increased in 2018 by £1.2 billion to £51.2 billion.
The official Scottish Government figures show that more than 60 per cent of all Scottish exports go to England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
As a result, the rest of the UK continues to be Scotland’s largest market for exports and accounting for three times the value of exports to EU countries.
