America’s farmers and ranchers are eager for a U.S. free trade agreement with the U.K., but only if the British are willing to eventually make a clean break from the European Union and all of its restrictions that hamper or block U.S. farm commodities.
The deal unveiled this week for Britain to exit the European Union would block U.S. plans to negotiate a free trade agreement with the U.K., preventing a new opening for American agricultural trade with the country, several British officials tell Agri-Pulse.
In the eyes of the Trump administration, the new trade deal binding the U.S., Mexico and Canada is a model for future agreements, and nowhere is that more evident than in the pact's Agricultural Biotechnology section.
President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May today forcefully stressed that the United States and United Kingdom plan to enter into a free-trade agreement after Britain’s planned exit from the European Union next year.
WASHINGTON, March 29, 2017 - Britain gave its official notice to the EU that the country is pulling out of the pact that has tied it to other European nations for more than 40 years and farmers are speaking up about their concerns.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 27, 2017 - Talks have already begun about how to put together a trade agreement between the U.S. and UK, British Prime Minister Theresa May said today at a joint press conference with President Donald Trump.
