BRITAIN, TEXAS SIGN STATEMENT OF COOPERATION – UK is seeking state-level deals with U.S. states while talks over a Free Trade Agreement

The United Kingdom signed a statement of cooperation with Texas, which aims to strengthen the trade and economic development ties between the UK and the southern U.S. state.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Britain’s Business and Trade Secretary Kemi Badenoch signed the agreement at Downing Street.

Britain is seeking state-level deals with U.S. states while talks over a Free Trade Agreement at a federal level have been frozen since President Joe Biden took office.

Britain’s business and trade ministry said the agreement with Texas, the second largest U.S. state economy, was targeting areas such as energy, life sciences and professional services.

The agreement comes four months after a similar pact with Florida. Britain is also in talks with the likes of California, Colorado and Illinois.
