Trump landing - 8 things for US President Trump and Prime Minister May to discuss that can strengthen our economies and make us more secure

The United Kingdom has no closer ally than the United States. Jointly our two countries take action to meet the challenges we face locally, nationally and globally. Our bilateral cooperation reflects the common language, ideals and democratic practices of two nations built over the centuries.

And we can afford to be upbeat because whatever the challenge, the British American economic relationship is a source of great strength, stability and opportunity. We are the single largest investor in each other’s economics. A million British people go to work every day in the UK for a US headquartered company, just as a million Americans go to work every day to work for a British headquartered company in the US. The business activities of the thousands of companies that day in, day out, trade and invest across our borders strengthen the ties between our respective economies and bring prosperity to our people.
