DFID is working in collaboration with HM Treasury and HM Revenue and Customs to develop the Government’s tax and development policy, and to improve the capacity of developing country tax administrations to raise revenue. We are also working closely with the Department for International Trade to support the Government’s work on international trade policy, with a specific focus on creating jobs and livelihoods in order to reduce poverty around the world.
