Prime Minister's Trade Envoys

The Prime Minister’s Trade Envoys are a network of appointed parliamentarians, drawn from the House of Commons/House of Lords and across the political spectrum. The role is unpaid and voluntary.

Trade Envoys engage with their respective markets where substantial trade and investment opportunities have been identified by UK government.

They support the drive for economic growth by building on the UK’s existing relations with these markets and help UK businesses take advantage of the opportunities arising from our global trade agenda.

In addition, they champion Global Britain and promote the UK as a destination of choice for inward investment across all regions of the UK, helping to level up the country.

The Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy programme began in 2012 and continues to go from strength to strength.

There are currently 37 Prime Minister Trade Envoys covering 67 markets.
