star this property answer text <p>Where JCB equipment is subject to export controls the exporter must have a licence authorising shipment. All export licence applications are assessed rigorously against the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria. The Consolidated Criteria provide a thorough risk assessment framework and require us to consider the impact of providing equipment and its capabilities. The Government will not grant a licence if to do so would be inconsistent with these criteria, including respect for human rights and international humanitarian law.</p><p>The British Government is fully committed to the promotion of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. The UK government has had discussions with JCB on a range of subjects and continues to encourage and foster respect for human rights among UK businesses.</p> more like this

It also states that “It should facilitate trade and investment between the Parties to the extent possible, while respecting the integrity of the Union's Single Market and the Customs Union as well as the United Kingdom's internal market, and recognising the development of an independent trade policy by the United Kingdom beyond this economic partnership.” Goods exported from the UK to the EU following the transition period will be subject to arrangements that are consistent with these objectives and principles.</p><p> </p> more like this

However, as part of the Department’s FDI Strategy, launched in April this year, DIT works with local partners through the High Potential Opportunities programme to identify emerging clusters, sub-sectors, supply chain gaps or other strategic opportunities that have the greatest potential to deliver economic benefits – across the whole of the UK. This includes local communities and small towns. The Department’s FDI strategy focuses on delivering new ways to target support for those FDI projects that create the most value for investors and the national wealth.</p><p> </p> more like this
