We are better equipped than ever to support SMEs, including those in Enfield and across London, to export. The Department offers a wide range of free support services via including our Export Support Service, International Markets network and through Export Champions, such as PME Cakes in Enfield. UK Export Finance (UKEF) also supports SMEs, which make up 84% of the companies supported directly with a UKEF product in 2022-23.

London exported £20.3 billion goods to the EU in the 12 months to June 2023. An increase of 26% in current prices since 2018; the largest percentage increase of all the English regions. The Department does not hold data on Enfield at a borough or constituency level.
