Lord Offord of Garvel, Minister for Exports

Building borders for business, trading for growth

The world has never been more connected. People and goods criss-cross borders every second of every day, boosting growth, productivity and wellbeing. International trade is at the heart of post-Brexit Britain with the Government committed to supporting UK businesses to seize global opportunities.

Resilient supply chains and frictionless exports are also key to boosting British businesses at home - creating jobs and delivering for consumers. Smart, slick borders are therefore key to supercharging the economic recovery and delivering prosperity. Cutting edge technology is already being deployed to transform our borders, and there are huge opportunities to go further - boosting Britain's reputation as a great place to do business by cutting bureaucracy and streamlining processes.

Reform are delighted to be joined by Lord Offord of Garvel, Minister for Exports, for a roundtable on how the borders can be a key enabler of growth.

This private roundtable will be held in-person and will take place under the Chatham House rule. This event is kindly supported by Fujitsu.
