Given at the dinner of the British Export Houses Association at the Mansion House on 5th June 1967

It is less than a year since the Government announced a number of related measures to strengthen the economy. Although we have by no means solved all our problems, there has since last July been a marked improvement in our situation. A welcome feature of this improvement has been the transformation in our balance of payments, to which the growth in exports has already contributed greatly. But we need this improvement to continue and to grow. For the time being, the success of our efforts to date is being obscured by a variety of troubles overseas but, if we persist in virtue, the results must shine through even this darkening scene. We all hope that, at least, the more ominous political clouds will disperse. If they do, and if the expected upturn in the American and German economies takes place, I see no reason why the rise in world trade, and the better opportunities which this brings for us, should be interrupted.
