The Prosperity Fund's Trade Facilitation Programme aims to support Brazil's integration into international markets in a sustainable and inclusive way. It will support a simplified and more stable business environment, which will contribute to increasing economic growth, inward investment and opportunities for international business, including for the UK. The UK Government's partnership with Brazil will reduce the economic and environmental costs of international trade, while strengthening Brazilian commitments and capacity to low carbon growth as part of our COP26 aims. The Trade Facilitation Programme's work to ensure climate and environmental standards will enable Brazil to build back better after the COVID-19 pandemic.
