Welcome to the BABN’s July Policy and Trade Update.
This month, we celebrate the official announcement of the Transatlantic Conference of the wider BritishAmerican Business Network. The Conference, the first major one in person since 2019 in Birmingham, UK will be hosted by the BABC Chapter in Ohio. We also highlight the release of BritishAmerican Business’ annual Transatlantic Confidence Index; a major reference for governments and business stakeholders alike. We acknowledge the success of the Transatlantic Growth (TAG) campaign 2022, which found its successful conclusion at our reception in London, in the presence of UK Secretary of State for Trade, Anne-Marie Trevelyan. We also celebrate another successful transatlantic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) as part of the #DITStateSide campaign.
