The Department for International Trade and the Department for International Development are working together to ensure development and global prosperity are at the heart of UK trade and investment policy, supporting countries to leave aid dependency behind and become our trading partners of the future.

Assessments of trade openness are available from sources such as the World Trade Organisation’s Trade Policy Reviews. In countries where DFID has a bilateral aid programme, DFID is helping to address the barriers to inclusive growth.
