star this property answer text <p>We welcome African efforts to develop an African Continental Free Trade Agreement. As we leave the EU, we are seeking to replicate the effects of the EU’s Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs), which are development-focused trade deals with developing countries. We also intend to allow many non-EPA developing countries to continue to benefit from tariff-free or reduced tariff access to the UK market. These arrangements will complement the African Continental Free Trade Agreement, at the same time as they strengthen UK trade opportunities around the world.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Afghanistan has seen huge progress in the provision of education services – the school enrolment rate has increased from under 1 million children in 2001 to over 9 million today. However, there is still a long way to go. A recent report by UNICEF and the Afghan Ministry of Education estimates that nearly half of school-age children – some 3.7 million children - are out of school. Approximately 60% of Afghanistan’s out-of-school-children are girls. There are too few schools in Afghanistan, and many children cannot access school without travelling long distances over insecure environments. Educational provision often does not take into account the particular needs of girls: for example schools in many provinces lack female teachers, sanitation facilities and boundary walls. The UK is supporting the Government of Afghanistan to improve access to education services for all – particularly girls and the most marginalised – and to improve the <em>quality</em> of those services. We are doing this by investing in innovative and scalable education programmes for girls, as well as technical and system-strengthening support to the Ministry of Education.</p>
