The Department for International Trade (DIT) engages regularly with key higher education stakeholder groups to seek their views on free trade agreements and to understand the needs of the sector. The Education Sector Advisory Group, jointly chaired by myself and the Universities Minister, brings together industry, government and relevant partners and is regularly updated on the progress of trade negotiations.
