UK hopes to expand U.S. trade by opening Mississippi office




Great Britain plans to open a U.S. branch of the Royal Commonwealth Society in Mississippi, part of a push to strengthen U.K.-U.S. ties and trade post-Brexit, British news agencies are reporting.

The Telegraph in London reported: "The move has added significance given both Theresa May, the prime minister, and Donald Trump, the American president, have signaled their desire for a U.K.-U.S. trade deal after Brexit."

"Indeed one of Mr. Trump's closest political allies, Phil Bryant, the governor of Mississippi, has agreed to serve as the branch's chairman of the board of governance," the Telegraph said, adding that officials from both countries have already held "scoping talks" for the trade deal, which could not be made until the U.S. formally leaves the European Union in March 2019.
