UK Trade Minister Emphasizes Opportunities to Strengthen State Ties

Greg Hands
Greg Hands, minister of state for trade policy for the United Kingdom, tells members of the CalChamber Board of Directors that the opportunities for bilateral cooperation between the UK and California are vast. Speaking at the CalChamber Board dinner in San Francisco on December 8, Hands cited the two trading partners’ shared values, innovative and creative mindset, and commitment to sustainable development. The trade minister said he was on a coast-to-coast visit to the United States “to spread one message — that the UK is open for business with the United States.”
