There is no question, the transatlantic trade and investment relationship between the UK and the United States (U.S.) is one of the world’s greatest success stories. Products proudly made in Britain fill the shelves in American stores and vice versa. The economic integration of the UK and USA continues to inspire and benefit thousands on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs across both countries. Transatlantic trade has become part of the inner fabric of many British and American companies. The companies behind it are #ChampionsofTrade.
Champions of Trade is an initiative produced by BritishAmerican Business in partnership with the U.S. Embassy London. It tells the stories of businesses, from SMEs to household names, across the entire United Kingdom (UK) and how trading with the United States (U.S.) has become a key part of their transatlantic journey.
It is a key initiative guided and supported by the U.S. Embassy in London and integrated in BAB’s wider portfolio in support of the UK-U.S. trade talks.
Over the past three months, we have identified and featured companies that are true #ChampionsofTrade. Through short video clips these companies told their story and how the transatlantic corridor is a driver for their ambitions and growth.
This event is being organised to acknowledge #ChampionsofTrade who participate in the project; companies that have a transatlantic story to tell; Companies that represent the thousands of others in the corridor; Companies that serve as an inspiration and encouragement to others.
During the event, we will learn about the products being traded, the companies that make them, and the people behind them. We will showcase the tangible and concrete positive impact of transatlantic trade and investment across the UK.
