Transatlantic Trade Forum 

24 June 2020


Covid-19 and distrust of China are driving the USA to reshore much of its manufacturing and to expand trade with its most friendly countries. The UK tops that list.

UK exporters could benefit from greater market access, common standards, simplified customs procedures and more if the right trade deal is achieved with the USA.

  • Get insights advice and support from our US and UK-based market access experts
  • Discover what opportunities exist for your product or service in North America and learn how to get started 
  • Join like-minded businesses in a North America export community, learning from each other's experience

We're pleased to announce that a special guest will join our panelists. Her Majesty's Consul General in Atlanta, Andrew Staunton, will provide a brief update on UK-US Trade Free Agreement negotiations and explain how he and his team support UK citizens and UK trade and investment in six, southern, US states comprising Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina and North Carolina.
