Conor Burns, who is the Member of Parliament for Bournemouth West, has been a long-time friend of Prime Minister Boris Johnson and supporter of the CANZUK campaign.

Burns tweeted that he was “looking forward to getting stuck in” and that Canada was “an important ally with shared values…we can and should do much more together.”

UK International Trade Secretary, Liz Truss, also said: “Our trade envoys play a key role in delivering our ambitious global trade agenda, and I am delighted the Prime Minister has appointed 10 trade envoys who will boost opportunities for British businesses in some of the world’s fastest growing markets.

Other CANZUK Trade Envoys appointed on Monday include David Mundell MP for New Zealand, and former England Cricketer, Lord Botham for Australia.

CANZUK International looks forward to working with Conor Burns MP, Lord Botham and David Mundell MP to further develop trading relationships between Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom and advance the introduction of reciprocal migration between the four nations.
