The Department for International Trade
The Department for International Trade (DIT) works to secure UK and global prosperity through free trade, greater investment and increased exports. The DIT is responsible both for promoting and financing UK trade and investment; developing and negotiating the international trade rules within which British businesses will operate once the UK leaves the EU.
DIT staff across the UK and overseas help UK businesses such as Superact to reach their full potential by maximising the benefits that flow from trade and investment opportunities. There is a broad range of support for potential exporters in the UK, as well as building the global appetite for British goods and services. The DIT champion the UK abroad to potential investors, and work closely with Whitehall partners to promote development through investment in emerging economies.
