In this year’s edition, we outline six transatlantic policy areas where we believe progress can and should be made by the US and UK governments in the months to come to strengthen the transatlantic corridor:
- Defining a new US-UK economic agenda based on a commitment to free trade
- A focus on supporting small and medium-sized enterprises
- A new transatlantic framework for data transfers that works for business
- A strong and predictable economic relationship between the United Kingdom and European Union
- Reaffirming the physical connection by safely reopening the US-UK corridor and further facilitating business travel
- Investing in the skills that both economies need to meet the demands of the 21st century
The selected areas reflect the priorities of BAB’s Policy Group and were agreed upon at the bi-annual meeting of the BAB Policy Steering Committee – a group of 20 leading British and American companies, representing and speaking for our wider network active in the transatlantic corridor.
