Sign the petition: let's change trade for good

To the Right Honourable Dr Liam Fox, Secretary of State for International Trade,

For Britain to be a great, global trading nation it must ensure its trade works for everyone. 

Please seize this opportunity to deliver better trade that brings prosperity to the poorest countries around the world as well as the UK.

If you make the right choices, you have the chance to change trade for good.

We call on you to:

1. Act quickly. Reassure economically vulnerable countries with an immediate offer of non-reciprocal duty- and quota-free market access.

2. Go further. Make it easier for developing countries to sell higher value products to the UK, and put in place trade policies to tackle poverty in line with our promise to deliver the SDGs.

3. Look ahead. Study the impact of planned trade deals with wealthier countries carefully to make sure that they don’t undermine poorer countries.

4. Use aid and investment well. Make sure that UK aid and investment helps the poorest benefit from trade by helping to strengthen and grow their local businesses.

Yours sincerely,
