Britain’s minister in charge of international trade makes the case for an open global trading order with the Commonwealth as its cornerstone.

I hosted the inaugural Commonwealth Trade Ministers’ Meeting, an event that brought together politicians, officials and policymakers from over twenty Commonwealth nations.

It is a testament to the strength of the Commonwealth that so many of its countries were represented at this landmark meeting, during which we discussed the opportunities for trade, investment, and enhanced friendship that lie ahead.
