British Consul General Holds Brexit Trade Meeting For Connecticut

As Britain’s exit from the European Union becomes a reality, the British Consul General to New England will be hosting a virtual visit to Connecticut this week to talk about trade opportunities. Dr. Peter Abbott and First Secretary of Trade Policy Tom Nickalls, will meet with Connecticut officials and business leaders, and the event includes a town hall-style meeting with Connecticut exporters about transatlantic business. It aims to explain the implications of the UK’s exit from the European Union as well as looking ahead to what a potential US-UK Free Trade Agreement might mean for states like Connecticut.
