The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration (ITA) is organizing a financial services trade mission to the United Kingdom in conjunction with the United States - United Kingdom Financial Innovation Partnership Initiative from June 21 to 24, 2021.
The purpose of the U.S. – UK Financial Innovation Partnership (FIP) trade mission is to expand opportunities for U.S. companies at the intersection of financial services, technology and international commerce. The FIP was established in May 2019 with the intent of encouraging collaboration in the private sector, sharing information and expertise about regulatory practices, and promoting growth and innovation. The FIP focuses on two main areas – regulatory engagement and commercial engagement. The FIP also seeks to promote a dynamic private sector that supports entrepreneurs and new business models – a necessary driver of financial innovation.
The FIP commercial engagement pillar provides for enhanced and regular opportunities for the private sector in one country to engage with industry associations and market participants in the other country. Participants in the FIP Trade Mission will gain market insights, make industry contacts, solidify business strategies, and discuss enabling policies, with the primary goal of increasing U.S. exports of products and services to the UK.
We invite you to join us for this opportunity. The application deadline is December 18, 2020, with limited spots available.
