Trade between developing countries and the UK
Description: Each year, £20 billion of goods are shipped to the UK from developing countries.
This trade generates the wealth, prosperity and investment needed to create millions of jobs and help the world’s poorest people stand on their own two feet.
Helping developing countries harness the power of trade means we are not only creating trading partners of the future for UK businesses, but supporting jobs at home too.
Which is why the UK government has committed to keep duty-free access to UK markets for the world's poorest countries post-Brexit.
