WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Chamber’s U.S.-UK Business Council applauds the launch of the U.S.-UK Dialogues on the Future of Atlantic Trade and welcomes the active participation of Ambassador Tai and UK Secretary of State for International Trade Anne-Marie Trevelyan.

Council Chair Clare Woodman, Head of EMEA and CEO of Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc, said: “The U.S.-UK Business Council is proud to represent American business at today’s event in Baltimore. This is an important opportunity to discuss enhanced bilateral cooperation to promote resilient and sustainable growth and innovation, create jobs, boost two-way trade and investment, and ensure the benefits of trade are shared widely across the economy. Close coordination among allies and partners is a key part of responding to today’s economic and geopolitical challenges.”  

The U.S. and UK are close partners and allies with a tremendous history of deep commercial ties. The two are each other’s single largest foreign investor, supporting more than 2.5 million jobs on either side of the Atlantic.

Council Executive Director Marjorie Chorlins said: “We must take advantage of these dialogues to advance a vision based on our shared values of democracy, free enterprise, freedom of expression, and an unwavering commitment to the rule of law. The Council looks forward to active engagement with both governments to ensure that these new dialogues are successful, including resolution of outstanding trade disputes and adoption of concrete measures to expand our commercial ties.”

The U.S.-UK Business Council is the premier Washington-based business organization dedicated to strengthening the commercial relationship between the U.S. and the UK.

The Council’s mission is to promote a mutually beneficial economic relationship at the highest levels of business and government via advocacy, engagement, and communications.
