South Korea Trade Negotiations Team

CSA19 - South Korea Trade Negotiations Team

The HMG Korea Trade Negotiations team, led by DIT, has given outstanding service in pursuing UK interests in the successful delivery of an agreement in principle of a trade continuity agreement with South Korea.

This involved almost three years of discussion with a highly experienced and credible trade negotiation. It involved a team led by the DIT Trade Policy DG, plus a large number of colleagues working remotely, drawn from across Whitehall and beyond. The delivery of the signed agreement in principle involved around 20 high level engagements, intense phases of work, and high levels of resilience. The HMG team demonstrated exceptional commitment to public service, learning whilst doing, and in the face of political uncertainty.
