The Government has made agreeing a comprehensive free trade agreement (“FTA”) with the US an early priority for the UK’s independent trade policy. The US is the UK’s largest bilateral trading partner and largest export market outside of the EU. Trade negotiations between the UK and US were officially launched on Tuesday 5 May 2020.
The inquiry will focus on core areas that are likely flashpoints in the trade negotiations between the UK and US. In the first instance, the Committee expects to focus on agriculture, healthcare and drug pricing, and digital trade and services.
