As the UK steers its post-Brexit future, it is placed between US and EU trade policies. What might these mean for the UK’s economic future? With multilateralism under threat, what are the implications for a ‘Global Britain’ strategy? Can the UK balance its US and EU interests or will it be squeezed out? What can we expect from Washington and Brussels?
