Business Plan

FCO business planWe will pursue an active and activist foreign policy, working with other countries and strengthening the rules-based international system in support of our values.

The FCO Business Plan sets out the Coalition Government's vision for the Foreign & Commonwealth Office over the next four years.

The plan is available to view on the Number 10 website with an Annex attached on the Common Areas of Spend.

As part of the Government’s Transparency agenda, we have completed the Measurement Annex which provides a series of metrics to measure our performance against the input and impact indicators which covers the majority of our work.

We have also published the planned FCO expenditure breakdown.
