US-UK trade

British American Business in coordination with other relevant UK business groups in the manufacturing, financial services, technology, creative industries/telecoms and life sciences sectors (including the MTA) are facilitating a workshop for the Department for International Trade to bring together UK and US companies in the transatlantic trade and investment market to discuss market access issues effecting their business and sector.

With a renewed emphasis on the UK-US economic relationship the sectoral workshops are a fantastic opportunity to feed directly into the evolving market access issues process in a concise and efficient manner. Representatives from the Department of International Trade (DIT) will be present and in listening mode to take forward to the new Government what comes from the sessions. 

The workshop will take place on 27th June 2017 at 9:00am – 12:00pm at the Chicago Booth School,  25 Basinghall St, London EC2V 5HA
