With the election of Joe Biden as President of the the United States, Syed Kamall, professor of politics and international relations at St Mary’s University, Twickenham, wrote for CityAM about the implications for global trade and UK-US relations.
Syed writes “As the Trump administration is consigned to history, we can expect a Biden presidency to adopt a more liberal internationalist approach. We will see re-engagement with bodies like the WTO and a reversal of the kind of hostility that led Emmanuel Macron to fear a ‘brain death of Nato’.
On UK-US relations, Syed writes “although Biden in the White House will have far-reaching consequences for the UK, these should not be overstated. Regardless of who sits in the seat of power on either side of the pond, the UK and US will remain allies through a plethora of international governmental organisations, and both countries’ pursuit of international agreements could give a much-needed impetus to trade negotiations.”
