On Tuesday 19th January, I was appointed the UK’s new Trade Envoy to Morocco and Tunisia. As Deputy Chairman, and former Chair, of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Morocco, I have been a long-standing supporter of Morocco.
With populations of 33 million and 10.8 million respectively, Morocco and Tunisia are exciting emerging markets and have great potential as trading partners with the United Kingdom. It is a pleasure to be given the responsibility of representing the United Kingdom in trade discussions with Morocco and Tunisia. I am especially pleased given the high number of Moroccan residents living in Trowbridge and I am looking forward to developing greater links between these two economies and the UK.
