Anne-Marie Trevelyan – 2022 Comments on Supporting Free Trade in Africa

The comments made by Anne-Marie Trevelyan, the Secretary of State for International Trade, on 29 March 2022.

As an independent free trading nation, the UK strongly supports the AfCFTA – the largest free trade area in the world.

We’re keen to see continued momentum on outstanding negotiations, and on practical implementation of the agreement on the ground.

This new aid programme shows that trade is a force for good, and will lead to increased trade, investment, and prosperity for both Africa and the UK.
