Trade Review 2017 - Time to Stand Up for Trade
Our 2017 Trade Review has been published: increased exports in 2016, good growth prospects but dependent on even quicker EU trade push, reallocation of staff resources to this 'growth and jobs' agenda, and rejection of creeping protectionism. The glass is definitely half full. Time to stand up for trade!
