The Department for International Trade develops and maintains close links across the United Kingdom on trade and investment objectives. We support businesses to seize opportunities worldwide through our network of British High Commissions, Embassies and Consulates in countries that are members of the Council of Europe.

In addition, we seek to identify and remove market access barriers, drive inward investment, and implement the United Kingdom’s trade agreements to promote and enable bilateral trade with countries around the globe, including with members of the Council of Europe.
