U.S. Opens Trade Discussions with Post-Brexit U.K.

Two nations seek trans-Atlantic free trade agreement. 

President Trump’s administration announced on Tuesday that negotiations between the U.S. and the post-EU U.K. had begun. The U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer held a video conference with U.K Trade Secretary Liz Truss about the future of trade relations between the two nations in light of the independent U.K.

Both nations have over 100 representatives each working together to establish a trans-Atlantic free trade agreement. A statement released by the delegation stated that the trade deal would, “contribute to the long-term health of our economies, which is vitally important as we recover from the challenges posed by COVID-19.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would bless the negotiations and bring about a good result for both nations.
  • For the Lord to use Robert Lighthizer to lead the American trade delegation effectively. 
  • That the result of this deal would bring about higher standards of living for both nations.
