London/New York – BritishAmerican Business (BAB) welcomes the sixth session of the UK – U.S Trade and Investment Working Group, held in London, UK this week; and the fourth United Kingdom – United States Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) Dialogue held on Tuesday 9th July 2019 in Bristol, UK.

BritishAmerican Business CEO, Duncan Edwards, said:

“That the sixth session of this important Working Group and the fourth session of the SME Dialogue are taking place this week, is a positive signal. It shows that both the UK and the US are continuing their efforts to explore how the UK and US might benefit from deeper economic integration once the UK has left the EU.

“The Working Group has been a successful platform for ensuring commercial continuity once the UK has left the EU and for building momentum and mutual understanding for negotiations around a potential future free trade agreement.

“BritishAmerican Business has been proud to be supporting these efforts in various forms, and we welcome in particular Governments’ efforts to explore new levels of economic collaboration, including in services, digital trade and Intellectual Property (IP), as well as the commitment to provide smaller businesses with better support to turn their transatlantic ambitions into reality.

“As a transatlantic business community, we are ready to support the US and UK Governments in this important process for the mutual benefit of both countries.”
