Commenting on The Transatlantic Business Forum, Vic Annells International Trade Director for UKTI East of England said: ‘With exports from our region to the US currently worth around £2.8bn and growing at 5.9% year on year it is vital that companies engage with senior decision makers from business and government in the US.
