BABC sister chapter, BritishAmerican Business, Publishes Discussion Paper on the Challenges of Food

BABC sister chaper, BritishAmerican Business (BAB), has published a new discussion paper: The Challenge of Food and Agriculture in a U.S.-UK Trade Agreement. The paper seeks to contextualise the thorny issue of market access for agri-food products by explaining how they are handled in trade negotiations, how and why standards differ, and what could be a possible solution for the U.S. and the UK.

The paper argues that a whole range of options, from labelling to conditional tariffs – while not desired – should be explored to break the stalemate on market access for food and agricultural products. All discussions on the subject need to be as objective and outcome-driven as possible, focused on finding concrete solutions in the context of the U.S.-UK trade negotiations.

Duncan Edwards, CEO, BritishAmerican Business said, “this discussion paper looks at the tricky question of market access for agricultural products in the UK U.S. free trade negotiations, an issue which could derail the whole agreement. We acknowledge the political challenges but argue that an objective approach and focusing on what can be achieved, rather than what cannot, will give both sides the best chance of success.”
