Download "Building on a Solid Foundation - The Business Case for a UK-U.S. Free Trade Agreement

‘Building on a Solid Foundation’ argues that a comprehensive agreement will allow an already world–leading trade and investment relationship to grow further. The paper uses real examples of British and American companies to show how business leads innovation, provides new jobs, creates consumer choice and contributes to the prosperity of both countries.

Commenting on the paper, Duncan Edwards, Chief Executive of BritishAmerican Business said: “As the trade negotiations between the US and UK enter their second round it is important to remember that this is not a theoretical exercise but a practical one of real significance to the people of both countries. There is already an astonishingly good trade and investment relationship between the two markets as our examples show. A new ambitious agreement which removes tariffs and unnecessary barriers and restrictions will encourage even more activity, from which both countries benefit through jobs and capital spending. This agreement was always going to be important, but it is needed more than ever now as both economies look to recover from the ongoing crisis.”

Emanuel Adam, Director of Policy and Trade, BritishAmerican Business London said: “I have seen first-hand how trade and investment between the UK and the U.S. defines the success and growth of companies in both countries, big and small. Alongside the economic success stands a visible change for the better for businesses, local communities and its people.”
