New Board of Trade established by Government

The Board of Trade is to be revived as an advisory body to attract more inward investment to the UK and boost exports.

The Government has given it the aim of spreading the benefits of free trade across the country.

The Board's first meeting will be in Bristol today, with the involvement of "prominent figures" in business and politics.

The International Trade Secretary, Dr Liam Fox, said it would promote a "culture exporting and investing", the BBC reported.
