On 9 July, BritishAmerican Business, the BABC Secretariat, was proud to support the 2nd UK-US SME Dialogue, kindly hosted by RSM UK.

The event was led by the Department for International Trade and the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with the Office of the US Trade Representative, the US Department of Commerce and the US Small Business Administration.
The dialogue brought together SMEs and stakeholders, on both sides of the Atlantic, with Government officials to identify ways to deepen UK-US trade and investment ties and strengthen cooperation on issues of mutual interest to SMEs.

Topics discussed included opportunities and challenges for SMEs in accessing both UK and US markets, regulatory practices for SMEs, intellectual property, and looking towards domestic and international growth of SMEs, through access to finance and other business support.
