Josh Hardie, CBI Deputy Director-General:
“While the attention of most businesses right now is to get through the COVID crisis, it’s vital that we keep one eye to the future and how we can plan for an economic recovery.
“The start of these talks offer a sign of hope to businesses. The US and UK already share the world’s largest bilateral investment relationship and an ambitious deal should offer opportunities for all regions and nations of the UK.”
The CBI’s report - A Roaring Trade - sets out how a deal can make it easier for skilled people to move between the UK and US, support small business exporters and help shape global standards for the industries of the future.
