Creating direct trade for sustainable wealth

"The UK is open for business both at home and overseas" 

The Rt Hon Kemi Badenoch MP

Secretary of State for Business & Trade and

President of the Board of Trade 

Set-up with the support from both the UK and international public sector, the UK Trade Middle East and Africa (UKTMEA) initiative will aid UK Growth Businesses, larger Blue-Chip Corporations as well as Government agencies who are looking to establish commercial relationships in the MEA region, as well as their counterparts looking to trade with them.


In a Post-Brexit and Post COVID-19 landscape, ‘UKTMEA' has been specifically designed to allow UK and African businesses trade more effectively with each other, and will provide support, information and dedicated resources to  provide ease of access to new business partners whilst mitigating any potential risks when trading overseas.

"Through the facilitation of business-to-business connections, trade opportunities, and investments, UKTMEA seeks to leverage this potential for the development of shared prosperity, economic expansion, job opportunities, and a global transition to sustainable energy".
