WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 11th September, 2018) The United States will host the UK trade delegation this November for the fifth meeting of the bilateral working group on trade and investment, Deputy US Trade Representative Jeffrey Gerrish said in a press release on Tuesday.

"In November, the United States will host the UK delegation in Washington for the fifth meeting of the Working Group, as well as host the third meeting of the US-UK Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) Dialogue in New York," Gerrish said.

The US-UK Trade and Investment Working Group has met four times since it was created I 2017 by US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and UK Secretary of State Liam Fox.

Gerrish met with UK Minister of State for Trade Policy George Hollingbery earlier on Tuesday in London.

They discussed a range of trade issues, including reducing barriers to US-EU trade, addressing the challenges faced by both economies due to non-market-oriented policies and unfair trade practices of third countries, the release said.

The US-UK two-way trade in goods and services amounts to more than $230 billion a year. Both countries also represent each other's largest source of foreign investment with nearly $1.3 trillion invested in each other's economies, according to the US Trade Representative's office.
