The Department is working to reduce market access barriers, including through Free Trade Agreements. This will open up more opportunities for business to build further resilience into their supply chains for the future. Alongside this, the United Kingdom will tirelessly fight protectionism and unfair trade practices, including through the G20 and in the WTO.

The United Kingdom has strong, collaborative relationships with other countries on this international endeavour, and will continue to make progress to facilitate free flowing trade. This will continue to be vital throughout the COVID-19 crisis, and for the recovery that will follow.
