The Department for International Trade and the Department for International Development (DFID) are working together to ensure development and global prosperity are at the heart of UK trade and investment policy.

DFID’s first Economic Development Strategy, launched in January 2017, sets out how the Government will support trade, investment and job creation in manufacturing, infrastructure and commercial agriculture to provide strong foundations for inclusive growth in the developing world.

We are committed to helping countries in the developing world leave aid dependency behind and become our trading partners of the future.
