Task Force Europe, working within the Prime Minister’s Office at 10 Downing Street, lead on the negotiation of our future relationship with the EU, including our trading relationship. HM Government will continue to take the views of business and other interested parties into account during the course of negotiations.

My Department listens to business representatives all the time – and we engage with thousands of exporters through our network of domestic and global trade advisers too. My Department’s International Trade Advisers offer end-to-end support to businesses on exporting, from developing their exporting strategy to closing deals and obtaining access to finance.
