Abstract: The UK’s New Labour government has been among the most vocal in global discussions about eradicating poverty. The Conservative party, should it come into power in 2010, promises to keep up the efforts. The Trade Policy Unit was created in 2007 to improve coherence between the UK´s development and trade policies. Since the economic crisis, the Department for International Development (DFID) has continued to stress the fight against poverty, highlighting the benefits for donors and recipients. This article discusses UK's development policy.
