US SME Exports: Trade-Related Barriers Affecting Exports of US Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) to the United Kingdom
This month BAB is partnering with the USITC on listening sessions around the UK to hear from US SMEs on trade related barriers that disproportionately affect US SMEs exporting into the UK.
Dates for UK Sessions
  • London - January 22 (09:00-12.00) - Hosted at US Embassy (Battersea)

If you know of a firm that fits the criteria below we are offering opportunities to attend the sessions or submit feedback in writing or on the phone. This is a golden opportunity to feed into a US Government policy initiative that will help shape the future of UK-US Trade and Investment relations, making it easier for SMEs to trade and invest across the Atlantic.
