Consul General Staunton provides an update on the UK response to Covid-19, Brexit and the U.S.-UK Trade Agreement negotiations that are just beginning. Moderating the event was British Honorary Consul and IBC advisory board member John Scannapieco.

Americans and the British are jointly battling the new stormy seas of global pandemic and economic disaster that pose unimagined complications to the already challenging questions of commercial ties as the UK enters the era of Brexit and national security questions as Washington backtracks on international obligations. Yet, the generations old special relationship between Americans and British allies remains as the glue that forms the mutual interest of the relationship. Watch this Webinar with UK Consul General Staunton talking about the paramount strategic consequences of U.S.-UK trade and investment and security challenges that impact our nation and states.

Supporting partners for the event included Baker Donelson, the Center for International Business at Belmont University and the Tennessee World Affairs Council.
