Trade brings economic growth to developing countries and benefits UK producers and consumers. That is why on 25 June I announced that as we leave the EU, we will secure duty-free access to UK markets for the Least Developed Countries. Once we have left, we will build on our track-record as a champion of trade and development, strengthening our existing support and seizing new opportunities to increase trade links.
