This section of our site explains how we are spending public funds to meet our policy objectives, and the actions we are taking in order to realise our goals.
With the challenge of global events such as the international economic crisis, terrorism, nuclear proliferation and internal conflict in various regions of the world, we work with international and UK cross-governmental partners to secure safer conditions for ourselves and British nationals abroad, as well as helping other nations and organisations to establish stability and promote beneficial international co-operation.
Through the continued development and improvement (both technologically and environmentally) of our global network of embassies and posts, we aim to:
Our global network of diplomatic posts help to make Britain influential abroad, and safer and more prosperous at home.
Trade and foreign direct investments play a fundamental part in the success of the British economy.
How we support British nationals abroad through our consular assistance
Managing migration for Britain is one of the government’s top priorities.
With the aim to reduce the risk of terrorist attack both within the UK and abroad, the continues development of our counter-terrorism and non-proliferation initatives are vital in securing a safer global future.
Our staff are working around the world to stabilise conflict and to tackle the causes of conflict by promoting and developing human rights, democracy, law and good governance.
What we are doing around the world to combat climate change and demonstrate the benefits of a low carbon society.
Developing effective international institutions, especially the United Nations and the European Union.
