U.K. Seeks to Deepen U.S. Trade Links Even as FTA Talks on Hold

  • Trevelyan to meet U.S. counterpart Tai in Baltimore next week
  • Discussions to bring together business, officials, ministers

The U.K. said it will step up discussions to deepen commerce with the U.S., even as official negotiations on a free-trade deal remain parked.

International Trade Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyan will fly to Baltimore for the first in a new set of transatlantic dialogs on March 21-22, according to an emailed statement from her office on Wednesday. U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai will also be there, and a second round of discussions will take place in the U.K. later in the spring, Trevelyan’s office said.
