The Foreign Secretary agreed a substantial engagement plan to engage parliamentarians and others on the FCDO's creation led by the then joint FCO-DFID Ministerial team.

The Foreign Secretary discussed the merger with a range of stakeholders through wide-ranging formal and informal engagements, including with Heads of Multilateral Organisations and Joint Ministers with CEO-level leading voices in civil society and business. Baroness Sugg, as the Minister responsible, led our engagement with Civil Society and Non-Governmental Organisations, hosting a series of roundtables.
