Who can I speak to?
Though the climate is changing, and the future of UK-US trade is less than clear, strong industry contacts and trusted partners in the US market can help any business navigating its way through the current uncertainty.
The Department for International Trade
(DIT) is a good place to start, and offers detailed advice for UK companies doing business with the US. It is also extremely well networked, enabling valuable local introductions for British companies.
