The Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation (Dutch: Minister voor Buitenlandse Handel en Ontwikkelingssamenwerking) is a Minister without portfolio and a member of the Cabinet and the Council of Ministers assigned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is tasked with the portfolios of Trade and Export, Development Cooperation and International Environmental Policies. The current Minister is Sigrid Kaag of the Democrats 66 (D66) who has been in office since 26 October 2017.[1]

Until 2012, the title was Minister for Development Cooperation (minister voor Ontwikkelingssamenwerking). Foreign trade and export promotion were handled by another person, a state secretary at the ministry of Economic Affairs. Internationally, the state secretary was allowed to use the title of minister. In 2010 both posts were merged, first as a state secretary; two years later there was a minister again.
