Trevelyan: U.S., U.K. to meet in Baltimore, talk taking trade to the ‘next level’

March 21, 2022

It’s a big number: $1.8 billion. And one I’ll be telling a lot of people about as I arrive in Baltimore for trans-Atlantic trade talks. The dollar figure is the total worth of all the goods and services that Maryland exported to the United Kingdom in 2019, just before the pandemic hit, making us Maryland’s fourth largest export market. In fact, it seems we Brits can’t get enough of Maryland’s world class goods: State exports to the U.K. are up 49% to $545 million in the decade leading to 2019, and services trade dollars increased by 30% to $1.2 billion over the same period.
