The UK is proudly committed to spending 0.7% of Gross National Income on Overseas Development Assistance, the first G7 country to honour its promise to do so.

The Cross-Border Trade Bill will allow the UK to put in place a trade preference scheme as we leave the EU. In the future, the Government will also explore options to expand our relationships with developing countries.
