star this property answer text <p>The UK is a strong supporter of the rules-based multilateral trading system and reducing the barriers to trade and investment in support of business and consumers.</p><p> </p><p>The World Trade Organization (WTO) is the bedrock of rules-based free trade and the UK welcomed the commitment made at the recent G20 Summit to support the necessary reform of the WTO to improve its functioning. DIT will continue to champion discussions on WTO reform through the EU, at international fora and in our bilateral engagements, in particular the importance of updating rules on digital trade and ensuring that the WTO dispute settlement system is not undermined.</p><p> </p><p>The Government intends to pursue free trade including through an ambitious programme of trade negotiations and enhanced market access. While we are looking to forge new agreements, the Government is also seeking continuity for our existing EU free trade agreements as we leave the European Union. These give us the platform to build and strengthen already-successful trading relationships.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Australia and New Zealand are close economic partners and allies. Trade between Australia and New Zealand was worth a combined total of £19.4 billion (in the four quarter to the end Quarter 1 2019). Through our on-going engagement with UK stakeholders, including our work to promote UK exports overseas, and with the Governments of Australia and New Zealand, we have assessed that the UK could increase its trade and investment relationship with both countries, benefiting both UK businesses and consumers. We have committed to starting Free Trade Agreement negotiations with both countries as soon as we are able to do so.</p> more like this

We offer a range of services and support for both new and experienced exporters and we work closely with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and industry bodies such as the British Beer and Pub Association to help British brewers in their export efforts.</p><p>We are developing export campaigns in high growth markets where there is potential for increasing sales of British beer and we continue to help British brewers enter those markets and expand internationally. For example, in November last year we organised the first ever UK Beer and Cider Pavilion at the Food and Hotel China trade show in Shanghai. Over 30 British brands were represented.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As announced by my Rt hon Friend the Secretary of State for International Trade in July, small businesses can now access government-backed export finance directly from their banks. UK Export Finance (UKEF) has partnered with the five major high street banks to provide small and medium-sized enterprises quicker and easier access to its support. Businesses are now able to access UKEF’s support directly from their bank without the need to apply separately. At the same time, businesses that do not yet sell overseas, but supply exporters that do, will also be able to access UKEF’s support, spreading the benefits of trade to smaller businesses across the UK.</p> more like this
