The devolved administrations will have a direct interest in our future trade policy and we will continue to work closely with them to deliver an approach that works for the whole of the UK.

Working in close collaboration with Defra, DIT engages the devolved administrations regularly to discuss trade and agriculture.

Through the White Paper - 'Preparing for our future UK trade policy' - DIT committed to a transparent and inclusive approach, whereby Parliament, the devolved administrations, the devolved legislatures, local government, business, trade unions, civil society, and the public from every part of the UK has the opportunity to engage with and contribute to future trade policy.
