The UK remains committed to ensuring developing countries can reduce poverty through trading opportunities; helping them to leave aid dependency behind and become our trading partners of the future.

The Government is currently reviewing its trade policy as the UK prepares to leave the EU.

The Department for International Trade is working hand in hand with the Department for International Development to ensure that development and global prosperity are at the heart of UK trade policy and shape our future trade arrangements with developing countries.
