EUA e RU trabalham em acordo comercial
July 29, 2019 -
O Presidente Donald Trump dos EUA disse que as conversações sobre
um “muito substancial” acordo comercial com o Reino Unido estão a
decorrer e podem levar a “três a quatro, cinco vezes” mais comércio.
U.S. trade in goods and services with the United Kingdom totalled $262.3 billion in 2018, according to the Office of the United States Trade Representative. The U.S. goods trade surplus with the UK amounted to $5.4 billion.
By comparison, bilateral trade with the European Union -- the UK’s largest trading partner -- reached $721.6bn over the same period, handing the UK a trade surplus of some $72bn.
Trump’s three-fold rise in U.S.-UK business would amount to bilateral trade of $787bn -- $60bn more than current EU commerce. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson would have a powerful negotiating card in his Brexit dealings with the European Commission.
