WINDSOR’S MP has stepped down from his ministerial role after five years in the post.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced he appointed ten new trade envoys across the world on Thursday, August 23.

Trade envoys are a network of cross-party parliamentarians appointed by the Prime Minister and they engage, as well as build relationships, with emerging markets in various countries where trade and investment opportunities have been identified.

In a statement to the Local Democracy Reporting Service, a spokesperson for Mr Afriyie said: “Having served since 2016, Adam stepped down as a Trade Envoy in February this year once the UK-Ghana post-Brexit bilateral trade deal was secured.”
