U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai met with her counterpart in the United Kingdom this week as part of the second U.S.-UK trade dialogue.
While not official trade negotiations, the dialogues focus on the future of trade between the two countries. Ambassador Tai and UK Secretary of State Anne-Marie Trevelyan hosted a series of roundtable discussions with a group of stakeholders from the U.S. and UK business community.
The trade officials agreed to build resilience in supply chains, address the global trade impacts of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and promote environmental protection, among other topics.
Drawing on the stakeholder discussions and bilateral talks, the duo directed their teams to work at pace over the next several weeks to develop an ambitious roadmap with economically meaningful outcomes in these areas.
Other focus areas include labor and environmental standards, promoting innovation, and economic growth.
Tai and Trevelyan previously held a similar trade dialogue in March.
