June 17, 2021

LONDON – United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai today released the following statement after concluding her first foreign trip and meeting with United Kingdom Secretary of State for International Trade Liz Truss to resolve the large civil aircraft disputes.
“Reaching an agreement with the United Kingdom to finally put the large civil aircraft disputes behind us is a great step forward for our special relationship. I want to thank Secretary Truss for her partnership while we worked to get this deal across the finish line. It is a model we can build on to ensure fair competition and address common challenges from China and other non-market economies.
“Our success this week shows that democracies can deliver results and come together to shape trade policies that lift up workers, people and communities that are often overlooked. This worker-centric approach will guide our efforts to address other U.S. – UK trade issues, and I look forward to working closely with Minister Truss in the months ahead."
