ACP YPN and CTLD submit joint Written Evidence in UK-US Trade Relations Inquiry

Caribbean Trade Law & Development (CTLD) and the Africa Caribbean & Pacific Young Professionals Network (ACP YPN)  have submitted joint written evidence to the United Kingdom (UK) House of Commons’ International Trade Committee’s on-going UK-US Trade Relations Inquiry . The inquiry  is examining the potential for a trade agreement between a post-BREXIT UK and the United States  of America (US).
Noting the importance of having a youth voice in this process, our joint submission referenced the important issue of ensuring market access for UK young professionals in the US market and ensuring that youth are given the opportunity to contribute to monitoring any negotiated agreement. The submission also emphasised the importance of including a development chapter into the Agreement.
ACP YPN and CTLD are grateful for the opportunity to have been able to represent the views of youth on this important matter.
Our joint submission has been published on the UK House of Commons’ ITC’s website and may be viewed here.
