On Wednesday, the Heritage Foundation gladly welcomed Liam Fox, the United Kingdom’s Secretary of State for International Trade, to explain the benefits of free trade, particularly a free trade partnership between America and the United Kingdom after Brexit.
The US and the UK are interdependent economically, Fox said. An open trade agreement between the two nations would be good for both countries as Britain leaves the European Union, he added.
Heritage experts have been making the case for a US-UK free trade deal for nearly four years.
Free trade has been a boon for people around the world, Fox said. “The effects of free and open trade allowed us to take a billion people out of abject poverty in a single generation.”
In the wake of Brexit, should the United States strike a free trade deal with Britain, one of our closest allies?
