LONDON OFF WHITE x Nike Blazer Studio Mid The Ten For Sale , Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- Food and drink exports from Britain saw a record growth in first half of 2017, the Food and Drink Federation (FDF) said Friday.
Whisky, salmon and beer were the three top exported products in trade with Ireland, France and the U.S., the top three destinations for British products, according to the FDF.
China was among the three export markets to record the greatest percentage growth in exports OFF WHITE x Nike Air Force 1 Low The Ten For Sale , notching up British exports worth 354 million U.S. dollars between January and June, said the federation.
Exports grew to 13.2 billion U.S. dollars in the half year, up 8.5 percent on the same period in 2016, representing the largest first-half exports value on record, said the FDF.
The report said exports to the other 27 member states of the European Union (EU) grew at a faster rate than to non-EU markets, increasing the share of sales to the EU to 61.2 percent
Sales of branded food and non-alcoholic drink continued to lead the way with exports up 11.3 percent compared to 2016.
Contrary to recent export trends Off White X Nike Air Max 90 Ice Trainers For Sale , the FDF said stronger growth was reported to EU countries than to countries outside the regional bloc.
Positive growth was reported in all top 20 markets, apart from Spain and Japan. Spain saw a 17.6 percent decrease compared with 2016 due to a drop in commodity exports, such as wheat and barley, while Japan was marginally down by 2 percent.
The three export markets that saw the greatest percentage growth in value were South Korea (+77 percent), China (+35 percent), and Belgium (+39 percent).
The U.S. was Britain's top non-EU market for exports of branded food and drink nike shox womens for sale , reaching 118 million U.S. dollars in the first half of this year, with top British branded goods sold including food preparations, bread, pastry, cakes, puddings and sweet biscuits.
A spokesman for the FDF said nike shox mens for sale , "While the fall in the price of the pound had helped to boost UK export competitiveness, this currency weakness has also led to an increase in the cost of many essential imported ingredients and raw materials."
"This has resulted in the UK's food and drink trade deficit increasing by 16 percent to 16 billion U.S. dollars during the review period," he said.
A recent FDF commissioned study has identified China, India and the United Arab Emirates as the top three target markets that Britain's food and drink companies would like to target.
Ian Wright, the FDF's director general, said balenciaga triple s for sale , "We want to work with the government to take advantage of increased demand for UK products overseas and the opportunities that leaving the EU is expected to create."
British Food Minister George Eustice said, "We have ambitious plans to produce and export more of our fabulous foods around the world and more businesses are trying exporting for the first time."

“Grey’s Anatomy,” the popular United States television series, is becoming a reality show for Shanghai medical students who want to become doctors in the US, but none will have the time watch it now.
They are too busy preparing for the United States Medical Licensing Examination, which is believed to be the most difficult professional standardized test in the world.
It consists of three steps balenciaga speed trainer for sale , and two must be conducted in the US.
The television series takes its name from Gray’s Anatomy, a classic English language textbook of human anatomy originally written by Henry Gray and published in 1858. No doubt the latest edition of the book sits somewhere in the stack of materials students need to help them pass the exam.
After passing Step 2, applicants and hospitals recruiting resident physicians go through a matching procedure after interviews. Each side lists its preferences and a computer decides which applicants should go to which hospitals for residency.
Gao Shan flew to the US in late June after being recruited by the University of Toledo Medical Center.
“No matter where I end up, the experience of taking the exam and being trained in the US will always be treasured,” she said. “The knowledge and skills I learn will always be with me, and off white air vapormax for sale , more importantly, I will see the world from a different point of view.”
Gao is a founding member of the Shanghai USMLE Group, an organization named after the exam. It was established in 2009 by students from medical schools at Fudan and Jiao Tong universities to share experiences and academic materials related to the exam.
Why are some Shanghai medical students keen to go abroad to practice?
Heavy workloads and low pay in Chinese hospitals are believed to be major contributing factors. But some medical students simply said they believe working in hospitals in more developed countries will enhance their professional credentials and make them better doctors. Many of them say they will return to China one day, bringing those advanced skills back with them.
Gao said the US licensing exam takes a long time and a lot of energy to prepare for. The interviews and matching process are just hurdles, and then the hard work of actual resident practice begins.
“But if you go through all this, you emerge a whole new person off white air jordan 1 for sale , much stronger and more mature than you have ever dared to imagine,” she said. “I'm not saying residency in the US is the only right way to go or is somehow superior. But if we believe the status quo in.
