Next Export Statistics Scotland publication plans

Export Statistics Scotland (ESS) has previously been published at the end of January each year. Statisticians decided to delay the Global Connections Survey (GCS) 2019, which forms the basis of ESS, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and then to allow businesses to focus on preparing for the end of the EU Exit Transition Period. This delay to ESS 2019 has had a subsequent effect on the timing of the 2020 and 2021 publications.

Data collection for the Global Connections Survey 2020 and 2021 is complete and the data has been quality assured. This data is now being processed to produce the figures for ESS.

The next ESS publication will contain data for 2020 and 2021 and will be published later in 2023.
