UK-US Relations

Robin Twyman, Consul (Business and Government Affairs) in Seattle for the United Kingdom joined us and provided an update on UK - US relations. Robin discussed the strong ties between the countries from an economic, education and military support perspective.  He also shared the importance of the State of Washington's businesses to the UK which led the UK to have a permanent presence here to support economic growth by bringing  Robin to Seattle in 2013. Robin shared many key statistics on the importance of each country to the other including the fact the US is the largest investor in the UK and the UK is the largest investor in US business.
