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.
