The UK greatly values its relationship with countries across Africa. We work closely with partners to deepen bilateral relationships across a broad range of issues including trade, infrastructure, honest, reliable investment, sharing UK expertise, as well as building geostrategic partnerships to counter malign influence. Working with African partners is also important to tackling global challenges like food security, climate change and international peace and security. We will continue engaging with African countries at official and Ministerial level, and this will include Ministerial visits to African countries.
