Rehman raises importance of religious freedom in trade negotiations with International Trade Minister

Rehman, in questions to the Department for International Trade, asked Minister Greg Hands to ensure that in future trade discussions with international partners, freedom of religion or belief & wider human rights concerns will be raised. During Covid-19 in particular, religious minorities around the world have suffered immensely. Rehman has raised human rights concerns before in this area when he was a Government Trade Envoy.

Rehman has been the Prime Minister's Special Envoy for Freedom of Religion or Belief since September 2019.
