UK & US launch transatlantic dialogues to boost £200bn trade relationship

The new series of transatlantic dialogues are aimed at deepening trade and investment ties between the UK and the US. International Trade Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyan and United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai will be among those gathering at the Joint UK/US Dialogues on the Future of Atlantic Trade. The events will bring together government ministers, senior officials, trade unions, businesses and civil society from both sides to discuss ways the UK and US can work together to deepen our trading relationship.

Shevaun Haviland, Director-General of the British Chambers of Commerce said:

“The BCC strongly supports the establishment of the UK/US Dialogues on the Future of Atlantic Trade, and we will be working with our network, on both sides of the Atlantic, to support the opportunities they can provide.

“We are uniquely placed to help, with our unrivalled expertise in trade facilitation, advice, training and brokerage services of Chamber Customs and the market access our US affiliate, British American Business, already provides.

“Working directly with US businesses and decision makers is crucial to address issues such as steel tariffs and sustainability, global supply chains, technology, digital trade, services, and mutual recognition of professional qualifications.

“Our research tells us that, outside of trade with the EU, the US is the most significant market for Chamber businesses. We want to double the number of firms trading overseas and look forward to playing a key role in the Dialogues to boost smaller firms access to the US market.”
