Exports are of critical importance to the Scottish Economy. In 1989, Scottish firms sold goods and services worth £64.7bn to final users, of which 21'/2% were to customers in the rest of the UK (RUK) and 14.7% to overseas (ROW) clients. In the case of manufacturing, final sales totalled £25.4bn, of which 35.3% were due to RUK and 32.5% to the ROW. Thus, two thirds of Scottish manufactured goods were sold out with Scotland illustrating the importance of non domestic markets to Scottish incomes and employment.
