The president of the British Chambers of Commerce, the UK's influential business network that works with government to shape business policy, shares his insight into what opportunities for small businesses there are as we move out of the recession.
He says we need to become an exporting nation and we need to capitalise on our trade relations with Europe. The continent is currently the UK's largest export customer, making up 55% of our exporting market.
Reyner also talks about the need to bring manufacturing back to the UK, for economic, environmental and common sense reasons.
His views on exporting and manufacturing provide opportunity for all British businesses looking to survive in these tough times, and for the government and economy as a whole as we look for the most effective routes for recovery.
