PM TO VISIT UNITED STATES TO MEET PRESIDENT TRUMP AND ADDRESS REPUBLICANS

The Prime Minister is expected to be the first world leader to hold face to face talks with President Trump when she visits the United States later this week.

President Trump has invited the Prime Minister for talks in the Oval Office on Friday. This will primarily be an opportunity to get to know one another and to establish the basis for a productive working relationship. The leaders are expected to discuss a number of the most pressing global issues, notably tackling terrorism, Syria, relations with Russia and cooperation in NATO.

The Prime Minister and President will also discuss how we can deepen our already huge economic and commercial relationship to the benefit of both of our countries, including our shared ambition to sign a UK-US trade deal once the UK has left the EU. Trade between both countries is already worth over £150bn, and the US is the single biggest source of inward investment to the UK.

As a result of the efforts the UK Government has made to establish strong links with the new administration, the Prime Minister has also been invited to become the first serving head of state or government outside the US to address the annual congressional Republican retreat, when it gathers for its 30th anniversary in Philadelphia on Thursday.

The Prime Minister is set to address Republicans from both the House of Representatives and Senate who are gathering in Philadelphia to discuss their priorities for the coming year. It will provide a platform for the PM to set out how we want to advance the special relationship in the coming years and work together on a number of shared challenges.
