The change in the resource element of the DEL arises from a transfer in resources from the Department of Trade and Industry to British Trade International of £2,000,000 in respect of the Global Partnerships programme; £156,000 in respect of the Pacific Rim Electronics Association (PREBA) and the Japan Electronics Business Association (JEBA); and take up of £1,551,000 of End Year Flexibility entitlement which is required to resource increased trade development activity in the English regions, including providing full support to new companies recruited to the Passport programme in 2002/03.

The increase will be offset by transfers or changes to the DEL Reserves and will not therefore add to the planned total of Public expenditure.
