Britain and the United States begin new trade negotiations

Britain and the United States begin new trade negotiations

London – AFP

The United Kingdom, which has so far failed to deliver on its promise of a post – Brexit trade agreement with the United States, will hold talks with US Trade Representative Catherine Day on Monday and Tuesday for new bilateral talks.

At the end of March, the two countries launched a series of “Atlantic talks” aimed at enhancing exchanges between them.

British International Trade Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyn met with the US Trade Representative in Baltimore on the US East Coast.

But the Biden administration does not appear to be in a hurry to resume talks on a free trade agreement desired by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

The meetings will be held in Aberdeen, Scotland on Monday and in London on Tuesday.

Not to mention the Free Trade Agreement, British Foreign Secretary Treville confirmed in a statement Sunday evening that he was “strengthening trade partnership” with Washington.

“These conversations provide us with a platform to explore modern and digital ways of doing business,” he said.

He noted that the UK would like to focus on “agreed priorities” with the United States, including the digital sector, innovation, “green” trade, support for small and medium businesses and the supply chain downturn.

For its part, Washington noted last week that the talks would allow it to “explore” ways of cooperation between the two countries to enhance mutual international trade priorities.

Since the UK’s exit from the European Union, which came into force on January 1, 2021, London has been negotiating comprehensive agreements to promote its international trade. The signing of a bilateral agreement with the United States was a priority for the British.

But despite the Donald Trump administration’s willingness to reach a bilateral agreement with London and continued negotiations, the Biden administration allowed the process to die down.

Furthermore, the United States stipulated any possible agreement in strict compliance with the Northern Ireland Peace Accords.

Although talks between London and Washington have made no progress, in return London is seeking to enter into private agreements with about 20 US states.
