Today, BAB published its latest policy paper “Taking the Next Step: A plan of action for US-UK trade cooperation following the US-UK Trade Dialogues.”
Building on the discussions held in Baltimore and Aberdeen earlier this year, the paper offers pragmatic recommendations to advance US-UK collaboration on Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs), digital trade, green trade, and supply chains.
While we welcome both governments’ commitment to dialogue and cooperation, as outlined in the joint statement issued shortly after the second Dialogue on April 26, it is important that the US and UK keep momentum behind the transatlantic trade agenda high and work at pace to deliver tangible progress on each of the identified workstreams.
The recommendations the paper outlines were produced in consultation with leading transatlantic businesses and other stakeholders present at the Dialogue meetings in Baltimore and Aberdeen and come at a particularly timely moment as the US and UK prepare for the revived SME Dialogue in Boston, Massachusetts on June 22. The paper is intended to serve as a useful reference for ongoing policy discussions and an encouragement to the US and UK governments to deliver an ambitious plan for bilateral trade cooperation.
