To ask Her Majesty's Government how many joint trade reviews they have undertaken with other countries in the last 12 months; and with which countries such reviews were undertaken.
6 February 2019
We are conducting a Joint Trade and Investment Review with China, which is an important part of significantly deepening our trade and investment partnership. We have made good progress and aim to agree recommendations in 2019. The UK-India Joint Trade Review was concluded in January 2018 and the UK-Brazil Joint Trade Review was concluded in March 2018. The UK is committed to working collaboratively with both India and Brazil to deepen the bilateral trade relationship, both before and after the UK leaves the EU. We have made good progress - for example through removing barriers affecting UK businesses.
