Exports including Scotch whisky will no longer face steep American tariffs after Whitehall and Washington agreed to end a long-running trade spat over Airbus and Boeing.
Distilleries, which had lost £600 million in sales to the United States, welcomed the agreement. Karen Betts, chief executive of the Scotch Whisky Association, said that it enabled “distillers to focus on recovering exports to our largest and most valuable export market”.
Liz Truss, the international trade secretary, said that the deal would let Britain and America to take their trading relationship “to the next level” and to work “more closely to challenge unfair practices by nations like China”.
