The Prime Minister’s Trade Envoys do an extremely important job and make a vital contribution on a voluntary basis. They support UK companies to win business, as well as promoting the UK as a destination of choice for inward investment.

There are currently 30 Trade Envoys covering around 60 markets including in the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, North America, Africa and the Caribbean. Trade Envoys are deployed regularly to their respective markets to promote British trade across the world and in the last financial year (17/18) made 52 official overseas visits.
