The government is committed to ensuring that our trade policy is subject to appropriate public scrutiny and informed by the views of a diverse range of stakeholders. To date this has included leading one of the largest consultation exercises run by the UK Government, and regular events and briefings across the UK.

We have also established the Strategic Trade Advisory Group and network of Expert Trade Advisory Groups that bring together a wide variety of stakeholders, from businesses to civil society organisations, to help inform our trade policy.
