London – In advance of the next UK/US Trade Dialogue on the Future of Atlantic Trade, held in Aberdeen, Scotland tomorrow, BAB’s CEO Duncan Edwards made the following statement:
“The transatlantic business community very much supports the efforts that the United States and the United Kingdom are making to build on their existing relationship through the Trade Dialogues and advance some of the crucial policy issues of our time, including support for small businesses, supply chain resilience, the energy transition, or the promotion and regulation of digital and green trade.
“The discussions held at the Trade Dialogues are an opportunity to strengthen the transatlantic trade and investment ties between the UK and the US and continue to reduce existing barriers to trade.
“Building on the progress made at the first Dialogue in Baltimore, it is important that discussions in Aberdeen focus on achieving tangible progress on each of the identified workstreams and lead to joint initiatives on SMEs, digital trade, green trade, and supply chains which collectively can contribute to the UK government’s levelling up agenda. Strong US-UK cooperation will be beneficial to both economies and across all sectors and we hope to see some tangible outcomes emerge from tomorrow’s discussions.”
