Department of International Trade – two years on

The Department of International Trade (DIT) was formed two years ago to help businesses export, attract investment, negotiate market access and free trade deals, and champion global free trade.

Since this formation, exports have grown by an average of £7 billon per month for the last 23 months, and DIT has actively helped firms secure more than £70 billion worth of export wins.

Last week Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson welcomed their Australian counterparts to government for ministerial talks in the 10th Australia-United Kingdom Ministerial Consultations (AUKMIN).

Speaking ahead of the talks Jeremy Hunt said: “Australia is one of the UK’s closest allies and […] we have a dynamic modern friendship including a significant exchange of people and goods. Talks with businesses and government on boosting trade between us when we leave the EU will be a top priority.”
