The UK has been able to maintain steady, if modest, growth over the past 5/6 years although it does remain to be seen how the UK’s exit from the EU – and the eventual ‘form’ this exit takes – will impact UK growth in the medium/long-term.
In the short-term since the vote to leave in June 2016, the relative weakening of Sterling versus both Euro and US Dollar has given some stimulation to exports whilst at the same, negatively impacting imports.
In the long-term, prospective new trade-deals with Countries outside the EU such as USA, New Zealand and Australia should stimulate trade growth to/from UK on Marfret’s deep-sea services.
