UK Government Department Backs The Digital Awards

Department for International Trade

A new Government Department which was announced last month to promote UK business overseas has given its name to The Digital Awards.

The Department for International Trade – led by The Rt Hon Liam Fox, MP – has signed up as a Supporter of the Digital Awards schemes in Cambridgeshire, Essex and Hertfordshire.

Previously known as UK Trade & Investment, DIT is responsible for promoting British trade across the world and “ensures the UK takes advantage of the huge opportunities open to it”.

Specifically, DIT is responsible for developing, coordinating and delivering a new trade and investment policy to promote UK business across the globe.

It also develops and negotiates free trade agreements and market access deals with non-EU countries and negotiates plurilateral trade deals (focused on specific sectors or products) and provides operational support for exports and facilitating inward and outward investment.

Robin Bailey, Chair of the Judging Panel at the Digital Awards said: “We are thrilled have the backing of the DIT and it is yet another ‘feather in the cap’ for the Digital Awards which has very quickly grown into one of the most progressive and exciting business and community awards schemes in the UK”.
