U.S., Britain to Start Trade Talks Next Week

The United States will begin trade talks with the United Kingdom next week in Baltimore, Maryland. Reuters says cementing a trade deal with the U.S. was one of the main goals of the push to get Britain out of the European Union. The two sides say the negotiations will be on March 21 and 22, followed by another meeting in Britain later in the spring. U.S. Trade Rep Katherine Tai says the talks “will explore how the United States and the United Kingdom can collaborate to advance mutual international trade priorities rooted in our shared values while also promoting innovation and inclusive economic growth for workers and businesses on both sides of the Atlantic.” The countries will discuss collaborating on easing supply-chain congestion, decarbonizing their economies, promoting digital trade, and supporting each other’s domestic workforces and labor rights. The UK government says it looks forward to deepening the already-thriving $153 billion relationship.
