British Prime Minister Theresa May will call on US President Donald Trump for deepening the economic transatlantic cooperation on Tuesday, claiming a bilateral trade deal could make their partnership “greater still”.
Despite anchoring the US President in the recent days of her premiership after her disaster for delivering Brexit on time forced her resignation, Theresa May will also distance herself from the US leader on trade by promoting “free, fair and open” markets.
At an assembly with 10 British and US businesses at St James Palace, the official residence of the Queen, Theresa May will tell the companies such as defense contractor BAE Systems and pharmaceuticals giant GlaxoSmithKline that greater cooperation would boost the two countries economic alliance.
According to advance extracts from her office she will say, “ it is a great partnership, but one I believe we can make greater still.”
She also added, “ with a bilateral free trade agreement, with broader economic co-operation, and by continuing to work together to underpin, shape and influence the global economy and its rules and institutions – keeping markets free, fair and open, and keeping our industries competitive”.
The talking, which will also relate to the senior representative from the National Grid, Barclays, consumer goods maker Reckitt Benckiser, JP Morgan, Lockheed Martin, Goldman Sachs International, construction company Bechtel and cybersecurity and data analytics firm Splunk International are assumed to focus in research and development and on the infrastructure investment.
For decades, the United States is the biggest single trading partner and the two shared a desire for opening up the world markets to free trade. The US President has rolled trade and markets by imposing tariffs on goods from the European Union, Canada, Mexico, and China.
