Department for Business and Trade

About this exhibitor

The Department for Business and Trade brings business and trade together into a single department, creating a department with all the levers to unleash the power of British businesses, reform regulation to reduce burdens and unlock Brexit freedoms.

The department brings together business expertise and world-class trade negotiators under the vision of making the UK the best place to start and grow a business – driving growth, increasing jobs, and raising wages and living standards. It will amplify engagement between business and government and strengthen our offer to international investors. The department will support investment, unlock exports, and open up new markets through trade deals, with joined-up offers of support to UK businesses operating both at home and abroad.

The Department for Business and Trade brings together the business focused functions of the former Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Department for International Trade (DIT).
