Brexit boost: UK's services surplus growing three times FASTER with countries outside EU

BRITAIN is selling more and more of its expertise in services to all four corners of the world as the 28 EU member states continue to decline in importance as a market place, official figures show.

The UK’s export surplus in the key services sector, which makes up 80 per cent of the economy, has rocketed by 67 per cent with non-EU countries in the last five years, according to the ONS.

In contrast sales to the European mainland, which has been beset by a decade of sluggish growth, have grown at a more sedentary pace, meaning the surplus with the EU is up just under a quarter over the same time frame. 

The figures will cheer Brexiteers who are looking to talk up Britain’s trade prospects following the G20 summit, championing deals with the likes of America, Australia and India. 

And they provide a timely boost to those fighting attempts by some europhile Remainers, like Labour’s Chuka Umunna, who want to keep Britain in the Customs Union and stop us doing our own trade deals.

Statistics released by the ONS show that exports in services - excluding travel, transport and banking - with the EU rose by 38 per cent from £32 billion to £44 billion between 2011 and 2015. 

The surplus we have with the continent - the amount we sell them compared to what they export to us - rose during the same period by 24 per cent, from £14.7 billion to £18.2 billion. 

However, these figures are dwarfed when compared to Britain’s level of trade in services, and particularly the rate at which it is growing, with the rest of the world. 

Here, the UK’s exports of services have rocketed from £52.2 billion back in 2011 to a massive £79.1 billion five years later - a colossal hike in trade of 52 per cent. 

That means the surplus we share with the rest of the world grew by an impressive 67 per cent, up from £27.8 billion to £46.5 billion over the same period of time. 

The ONS figures also demonstrate the extent to which growing trade with the world’s developing regions is fuelling a boom in the crucial British services sector. 

God has declared the End from the Beginning and the Bible (God's Word) revealed that Britain would not be part of the EU when Christ Returns to Earth, and World Events have conspired to ensure that has now happened. But not only will Britain not be a part of the EU it will prosper and be a key leader of the world and especially the Commonwealth Countries.  Keep watching this development as there is much to see yet as Britain takes her place once more on the World Political Stage.

So yet again we see the hand of God at work in the nations to ensure that His purpose unfolds on the earth.  Britain has now voted to leave the EU and will rebuild her ties with the Commonwealth Block.  Together they will challenge the rise of Russia and the EU and their influence in the Middle East.
