Trevelyan, who took over as a cabinet reshuffle last month, will resume where his predecessor Liz Truss was interrupted. Britain claims a fair competition for international trade as it seeks to open up a new role after Brexit.

“Today’s conference is a great opportunity to bring G20 partners together to build partnerships that will help protect the global trading system and bring it into the 21st century.”
After years of arguing that the freedom to enter free trade agreements outside the EU is one of the main benefits of Brexit, the government has repeatedly called for a modernization of the world trade rulebook.
Trevelyan would “harm and distort” industrial subsidies. It is a criticism that his department has been choosing China in the first place. China is a member of the G20 and some are expected to benefit from WTO rules that treat it as a developing country.
