The Government is developing a range of options for identifying and tackling non-tariff market access barriers once we leave the EU. The Secretary of State and I host regular Ministerial Trade Dialogues with overseas markets, which provide an excellent forum for addressing non-tariff barriers to trade. The Government will continue to deploy its international network, and is also able to conduct trade reviews to identify and address trade and investment barriers.
