Department for International Trade
From ACT Wiki
UK government international trade.
The former DIT was the UK government international economic department that was responsible for:
- Securing free trade agreements and reducing market access barriers, ensuring that UK consumers and businesses can benefit from both.
- Delivering economic growth throughout the UK through attracting and retaining inward investment.
- Supporting UK business to take full advantage of trade opportunities, including those arising from delivering free trade agreements and facilitating UK exports.
- Championing the international trading system and operating the UK’s post-Brexit trading system, including protecting UK businesses from unfair trade practices.
The DIT's responsibilities were transferred to the newly formed Department for Business and Trade (DBT) in February 2023.
