The Department for International Trade has held many business events in each of the last two years, to support businesses to trade internationally, to promote the UK as a leading destination for foreign investment and to promote the message of free trade. Attendees were invited based on their relevance to these objectives, and focused primarily on business, diplomatic, and policy representatives as well as organisations representing civil society, particularly those that reflected interests across consumer, trade union, academia, regional and devolved areas. Attendees were not invited on the basis of representing religious or cultural communities.
