Trade: Developing Countries

Question for Department for International Trade

UIN 910519, tabled on 25 April 2019

What plans he has to ensure that the poorest countries in the world are able to take part fairly in global trade.

We believe that the global, rules-based system is the most important protection poorer countries have. We will champion their interests through the WTO, enact a UK trade preferences scheme through the Taxation Cross Border Trade Act and then further improve their access to the UK market after we’ve left the EU.
