Ministers and officials continue to engage across all sectors of the economy.

Since the Department was established Ministers have had over 500 engagements with stakeholders, many of which have significant international operations. In addition, the Ministerial team has undertaken 72 visits to Member States since July 2016, many of which have included engagements with businesses in those countries.

All engagements are listed in the quarterly transparency returns.

Ministers and officials will continue to engage broadly across the UK and internationally so that we can achieve a deal that is in the mutual interest of both sides.
