Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 30 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government how many companies are generating (a) 100% and (b) 50% of Scotland's exports.

Answered by: Keith Brown 13 December 2016

The Exports Statistics Scotland publication estimated that 50% of international exports were attributable to around 70 businesses in 2014. Due to the methodology used, we are unable to say how many businesses account for all international exports.
