美英开启后“退欧”时代合作 或将助力金融科技产业发展

昨日,美国贸易代表Robert Lighthizer与英国国际贸易部长Liam Fox博士进行了会谈。这也是英国大选之后两国贸易代表的首次会面。

英国政府表示,希望借助本次会议,在后“退欧”时代建立一个全新的英美合作贸易计划。有意思的是,美国方面其实此前也曾表示,希望加强与英国方面的双边贸易合作。如果会谈进展顺利,那么或许可以缓解一下英国在“退欧”过后的紧张局面。

据统计,英美两国之间每年的贸易总额高达2300亿美元。美国是英国最大的单一投资国,双方在两国经济中的投资总量高达1万亿美元。而且两国文化氛围相近,都为富有创新探索精神的企业家创造了各种积极的成长环境,而这或许也将助力英国金融科技创新产业保持现有领先优势并在将来取得更多发展。

无论对美国还是英国,金融服务产业的重要性都是不言而喻的。如果两国之间能够实现资本和服务的有效流通,那无疑都双方都是有利的。

The US Trade Representative, Robert Lighthizer, met with the UK International Trade Secretary Dr. Liam Fox yesterday. This was the first visit between the two trade reps since the UK election.

According to the UK government, discussions included the possibility of a new trade arrangement between the two countries following Brexit. This is quite interesting as there has been a good amount of chatter inside the Beltway (DC) supporting the possibility of forging a stronger, bilateral relationship with the UK. If this moves forward, it may temper the talk emanating from Brussels of a hard Brexit.

Trade between the the UK and the US is already worth about $230 billion a year. The US is the single biggest source of inward investment into the UK, and together there is around $1 trillion invested in each other’s economies. That is significant. There are many similarities between cultures as well. Both the UK and the US embrace an entrepreneurial culture of risk-taking and disruption, perhaps best exemplified in the UK by its leadership in Fintech innovation.

Lighthizer welcomed Fox, expressing an interest to create a stronger relationship between the two countries including “exploring the possibility of a new U.S.-UK trade agreement.”

Financial services are vital to both the US and the UK. It would be quite interesting to see a streamlining of the flow of capital and services between the two countries. This could clearly be mutually beneficial.
