The Department for International Trade was created in July 2016.

For the 2015-17 Parliament, the Government will shortly publish its final report on the savings to business delivered during that Parliament.

This will be monitored through the target that the Government is required to set under the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015.
