Progress with trade negotiations


Trade is vital to the UK economy. In 2019, the UK exported goods and services worth £689 billion and UK imports were worth £717 billion. Following EU exit, the Government is taking forward the UK’s independent international trade policy and is aiming for 80% of UK trade to be covered by Free Trade Agreements by the end of 2022.

The Committee will question senior officials the Department for International Trade and Defra on UK progress in trade negotiations, including converting existing EU trade agreements with non-EU countries into new UK agreements, as well as DIT’s progress with trade negotiations with new partners.

If you have evidence on these issues please submit it here by Wednesday 12 January 2022 18:00.
