The UK’s exit from the European Union will not stop us driving forward our core mission of reducing poverty around the world. The vast majority of DFID’s work is not done via the EU. We remain committed to spending 0.7% of our national income on Official Development Assistance and to achieving the UN’s Global Goals and ending extreme poverty by 2030.

After Exit DFID will continue to deliver on our commitments to our developing country partners. Our aid budget will be spent to help the poorest people in the world and in the best interests of UK taxpayers.
