Lobbying – BFPA joins new Technical Barriers to Trade Thematic Working Group

22 March, 2021

Following discussions with the Department for International Trade (DIT), BFPA has been invited to sit on the DIT Technical Barriers to Trade Thematic Working Group (TBT Working Group). The DIT have acknowledged that in negotiating the new trade deals around the world the officials and Ministers actually sitting at the negotiating table need to take account of the views of the industries that they represent. i.e. in our case – BFPA members. The TBT WG is therefore a vehicle for negotiators to bounce their ideas off industry and to provide industry with an opportunity to input their views – direct to the negotiating teams. The Terms of Reference actually say; “To make sure that Trade Policy is set on the basis of the views expressed by industry.”


Chris Buxton, BFPA CEO comments: “I am very pleased to say that BFPA has managed to secure a seat on this Working Group. We are in very good company with a selection of major organisations being represented including other Government departments such as the MHRA, Defra, DfT and BEIS.” The first target countries currently occupying the negotiation teams are: Japan, the USA, Australia and New Zealand. He adds: “I have already contacted our members for input and received responses from our fluid power members which will feed into the discussions with Government.” Please contact chrisbuxton@bfpa.co.uk for more details.
