UK: Increasing our Security Exports: A New Government Approach
Source: UK Trade & Investment via GOV.UK
From the Introduction:
From homeland security and border control to surveillance and detection equipment, UK companies are at the forefront of designing, manufacturing and selling security-related goods and services all over the world.
In comparison with the defence sector, which consistently captures about 20 per cent of the global defence export market, the UK security sector currently achieves just over 4 per cent of the global security export market.
The Defence and Security White Paper National Security through Technology published in February 20121 recognised that a healthy and competitive UK security industry can make a significant contribution to our national security. It can create jobs, maintain skills and sustain advanced manufacturing and technological capabilities. The White Paper noted that whilst the UK is the second largest defence exporter in the world, our performance in the security export market is not consistent with our reputation and expertise. The White Paper concluded that the government should provide further support to industry to improve its export performance.
