As of September 2015, the Saana Institute has formally become the Secretariat for the UK All-Party Parliamentary Group on Trade Out of Poverty (APPG TOP).

The Institute is committed to continue the work of its predecessor, Ruth Stanley, using its expertise in trade and regional integration in the developing world to further the aims of the APPG TOP.

The Secretariat will be supporting the APPG in holding events, organising field trips and conducting research, such as inquiries and publications, to raise awareness of the importance of trade as a route out of poverty, and to find ways of enabling poor countries to develop through trade.
