UK Trade Partnerships Programme

Last updated: 20/11/2022
IATI Identifier: GB-GOV-1-300602


The UK Trade Partnerships Programme (UKTP) aims to increase trade with developing countries that have preferential trading arrangements with the UK. From 2018 to 2023 this has been with Economic Partnership Agreements (EPA) partner countries in Africa, the Caribbean and Pacific. From FY23/24, all developing countries with preferential trading arrangements with the UK have been eligible for support i.e. EPA countries and countries eligible to import goods to the UK using the Developing Countries Trading Scheme (DCTS). The programme delivers: (i) technical assistance to support the implementation of the new UK EPAs and the DCTS; (ii) communications campaigns to increase awareness amongst businesses in EPA and DCTS countries about the preferential access offered under these arrangements and how to use these preferences; and (iii) targeted support, e.g. with logistics or export marketing, to promote exports from EPA and DCTS countries to the UK.
