The UK’s 2021 G7 Presidency features a dedicated Trade Track at the G7 for the first time, led by the Department for International Trade. The Trade Track presents an opportunity for the UK to work with our G7 partners to shape a bold global vision for economic recovery that sees us build back better together - greener, more prosperous, resilient, and fair.
To do so, the Trade Track focuses on four priority areas:
- WTO reform
- trade and health
- digital trade
- trade and climate policy
Following the G7 Trade Ministerial virtual meeting on 27 - 28 May 2021, Trade Ministers emphasized their unity in commitment to free and fair trade as foundational principles and objectives of the rules-based multilateral trading system, as well as to the modernisation of international trade rules.
