London/New York – Today, U.S. President Joe Biden and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson are expected to meet ahead of the G7 Summit in Cornwall.

On the occasion, BritishAmerican Business CEO, Duncan Edwards, said:

“This meeting could not come at a more important moment. There are many great opportunities for the UK and the U.S. to set the global agenda and lead the world on, from how to embrace the fight against climate change, to building a sustainable, free, and fair trading system, and to the need to vaccinate the world.

“The two leaders and their teams must also address the issues that currently put a strain on the transatlantic relationship, its businesses, communities and people. It is time to bring the transatlantic tariff conflicts to an end, to find a multilateral solution to global taxation, and to re-open transatlantic air travel.

“For too long, these issues have held businesses back and affected growth, innovation, connectivity, and trust, all of them crucial for a quick recovery from the crisis.

“Our business community stands ready to support both the UK and U.S. governments in achieving these objectives.”
