The US Trade Representative (USTR) published its 2017 Trade Policy Agenda and 2016 Annual Report on 1 March. The annual report is a statutory obligation, charting progress on trade policy matters in the preceding year and setting the course for the year ahead.

The US is our largest single trading partner, accounting for a fifth of all exports. The Prime Minister and President Trump agreed to take forward high-level talks to lay the groundwork for a future U.K.-U.S. trade agreement and identify the practical steps we can take now to enable companies in both countries to trade and do business with one another more easily.
