Yorkshire Business of the Year: Spotlight on International Trade

Award winners at the Yorkshire Business Masters 2022

Yorkshire and Humber exported £17bn goods and £12bn services in 2021 – the latest figures available from the office of National Statistics.

The biggest goods exporting sector was manufacturing (£12bn), with financial and insurance activities (£5bn) topping the services exports.

The EU is the region’s largest export market, followed by the USA.

Imports totalled £36bn.

Last year’s winner, Crisp, built a global business from its Leeds headquarters, culminating in its acquisition by Kroll.
