About Us

In a world of change and competition, the DTI is working to create the conditions for business success and help the UK respond to the challenge of globalisation.

As the Department responsible for trade, business, employees, consumers, science and energy, the Department is in a unique position to contribute to the wider challenge of globalisation – enabling business and employees to prosper in the UK.

Delivering outcomes will require ever closer working with others reaching out to more stakeholders, and working with Whitehall Departments to raise awareness of the Government role in addressing globalisation.
