The latest data accessed from Eurostat shows that the UK imported, tariff free, goods worth £23.2bn from developing countries in 2017. There is no single definition of developing countries. This figure includes imports from all countries that receive preferential access to the UK through the Generalised Scheme of Preference, Economic Partnership Agreements or Market Access Regulations.
