Total export growth over the last six years has been 29 per cent - but it must grow 285 per cent in the next six years to hit the Chancellor’s £1tr target by 2020, according to NatWest.

The bank’s figures show export is worth £350bn annually - with half to Europe and half to the rest of the world. Switzerland was the top country exported to.
