In this episode, we’re heading stateside as we take a closer look at the trade relationship between the UK and the United States. In one sense, it’s a relationship that only came into existence when Britain finally left the EU customs union at the end of last year. But that belies the fact that the United States is the UK’s biggest single trading partner, and London has duly inherited most of the trade policy issues which previously exercised Washington and Brussels, and for the most part still do. So how are the post-Brexit UK, and the post-Trump US, getting on trade-wise? Chris Horseman is joined by Peter Holmes, Fellow of the UK Trade Policy Observatory; Marianne Petsinger, Senior Research Fellow at Chatham House; and Marc Busch, Karl Landegger Professor of International Business Diplomacy at the School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University.
