We hope August offered you a chance to rest and recuperate after what has been a busy year thus far. As we move into the final quarter of 2018, we look forward to welcoming as many of you who can make it, to one of our fantastic chapter events which take place all over the UK and North America. Check out the Upcoming Events section for more details.
The month of July was marked by a visit to the UK from President Donald J. Trump, the first time since entering office. The President's visit was the precursor to an announcement by the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) that formal, public consultations will take place on new trade arrangements with Australia, New Zealand and the United States, following the latest meeting of the US-UK Trade and Investment Working Group. More information on these consultations, including how you can contribute, can be found in the Business Opportunities section below.
The May/June period has certainly been busy for the BABC network, particularly with the launch of a brand new trade publication as well as the ever-fantastic Annual Transatlantic Conference, hosted this year by BABC Midlands who delivered an incredible event with a brilliant line-up of speakers. In addition, BABC appointed a new President. Congratulations to Stuart Bagshaw, Chief Executive of British American Business LEAP, LLC, who takes on this role after having served as President and Chairman of the BABC Chapter in Northern California. It does not stop here. Over the next few weeks BABC looks forward to two more events this month that the network supports; the International Business Festival, running until 28 June in Liverpool, UK; and the SelectUSA Investment Summit between taking place 18-20 June.
