BABC Pacific Northwest Welcomes Joint Release of Investment Working Group
BABC Pacific Northwest welcomed the joint release by the Secretary of State, The Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP, and the US Trade Representative, Robert Lighthizer, at the culmination of the first plenary session of the UK-US Trade and Investment Working Group which took place in Washington DC this week.
BABC Pacific Northwest, as part of the wider BABC network, fully supports the Working Group’s objective to explore options of future economic integration between the UK and US. As the UK prepares to leave the EU, making it a priority to give certainty and confidence to business and minimising disruption through a focus on providing commercial continuity for US and UK businesses is highly welcome by our membership.
"We as a transatlantic business community stand ready to support US and UK Governments in this important process to a mutual benefit of our great nations," said Gareth Wade, BABC Pacific Northwest Chairman.
