Read CAFOD's new trade report for MPs, International Trade for the Common Good

CAFOD's work on Fairtrade

Let's make trade work for the common good

One of the results of Britain leaving the EU is that we will be responsible for setting our own trade policy. This is an opportunity for the government to embed poverty elimination into our global trading.

The principles and values that govern our new trade policy must secure our own future prosperity while also working for the benefit of all. 

Please email your MP to ask International Trade Secretary Liam Fox to make sure that the UK uses its trade policy to benefit the world's poorest people.

We have started an email on the next page, but please add in your own words why you care about the issue. The more personal you make your email, the more it will stand out to your MP.

You don't have to be an expert, we have put together some points in this briefing you might want to include.
