WASHINGTON, March 16 (Reuters) – The United States and Britain will begin trade talks next week, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) and the British government said on Wednesday.
In separate statements, they said the talks would start on March 21-22 in Baltimore, United States, followed by another meeting in the coming months in Britain.
They will “explore how the US and UK can work together to advance our mutual international trade priorities, rooted in our shared values,” the USTR said.
The two countries are expected to discuss cooperation in the areas of supply chains, decarbonizing their economies, digital trade, supporting the national workforce and labor rights, the Wall Street Journal reported, which previously reported on the talks, citing US and UK officials.
