Post-Brexit, Britain can be a global leader in helping developing countries build their access to international markets and in ensuring that it is the poorest that benefit from these trading relationships. In taking this leadership role, we will be doing something that we can rightly be proud of, whilst also creating the UK’s trading partners of tomorrow.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>I have just returned from Sierra Leone where I saw first-hand the scale of the development challenges, and the essential leadership role that the UK is playing in tackling them. Our cross-HMG response to the 2014/15 Ebola crisis was instrumental in bringing the epidemic under control. Since then the UK has pledged £240 million to Sierra Leone’s two year post-Ebola recovery agenda, which is saving lives, ensuring children get a better education and laying the groundwork for increased economic development.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Value for money is not just a matter for those who ultimately foot the bill for our aid budget – British taxpayers. Given the lifesaving work UK aid does across the globe, driving value for money also means that fewer lives are wasted to the scourge of poverty and disease. Driving the very best results for our money is therefore as much about helping the poorest as it is for justifying spending to those paying for it.</p> more like this
