MANCHESTER, England - British business and trade minister, Kemi Badenoch, has conveyed her perspective on the possibility of a free trade agreement (FTA) between the United Kingdom and the United States under President Joe Biden's administration. She cited the President's stance on such agreements as a key factor.
President Biden has temporarily halted FTA negotiations with several countries, including Britain. When questioned about the likelihood of a free trade deal under the Biden administration during an event at the Conservative Party conference, Minister Badenoch responded by stating that the chances were "zero."
Nevertheless, Minister Badenoch also acknowledged the existence of other opportunities for cooperation. She highlighted the potential for collaboration in critical minerals and partnerships with individual U.S. states.
