The Secretary of State has announced the Government’s decision to appoint nine Her Britannic Majesty's Trade Commissioners (HMTCs) to head the overseas operations for the Department of International Trade (DIT). These HM Trade Commissioners will lead export promotion, investment (inward and overseas direct investment) and trade policy overseas.

These are Senior Civil Service appointments and a fair and open recruitment competition will begin shortly, in line with Civil Service Commission principles.
