The Government has set out its position on the Future Economic Partnership (FEP) with the EU in the Political Declaration and White Paper on ‘The future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union’. The FEP will be consistent with the UK’s ambitions as a global trading nation, recognising the development of our independent trade policy beyond the economic partnership with the EU.

Alongside its work to negotiate market access and trade deals, the Department for International Trade (DIT) continues to help businesses to export, encourage and facilitate inward and outward investment, and champion global free trade. DIT’s objectives are set out in its Single Departmental Plan, available on GOV.UK.
