The Department for International Trade (DIT) promotes trade and investment across all parts of the UK through our overseas network, international events programme, bespoke sector support, online services and regional teams. DIT follows the “UK first” approach, which means we support investors to make or expand their investments in the UK, but do not prioritise certain places or regions within the UK above others.
