May plans on creating a ministry for trade tasked with the sole purpose of boosting bilateral trade relations with “old friends and new allies”.
On Monday, Theresa May’s Conservative Party has presented its post-Brexit scenario of setting up a network of nine trade commissioners around the world in order to boost trade.
Despite the slender lead over the Labour Party, May’s Conservatives is expected to win the June 8 parliamentary elections.
The conservative party said the trade commissioners will promote exports, drive trade policy overseas and seek inward investments.
“They will be based overseas in nine different regions, determined by markets rather than national borders, to ensure UK trade policy is guided by local experience and expertise,” said the Conservative party in a statement.
It has not specified what the nine regions would be.
With the Conservative Party rolling out its post Brexit plan, it would appear May plans on taking Britain out of the EU’s free single bloc in order to seek bilateral trade deals with “old friends and new allies”.
May’s government plans on creating a new “Board of Trade”, which will harness the business potential of leading politicians and business figures so as to boost exports, and lead trade delegations.
