Message from Ambassador Susman
"The United Kingdom is one of the world’s most attractive destinations for U.S. exporters. It is a sophisticated market with advanced infrastructure, and our shared language and commercial practices make doing business straightforward. The UK’s location also serves as the ideal platform for expansion into the rest of Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Many U.S. firms already active here are engaged in the high-growth, R&D-based industries of the future that are the focus of President Obama’s National Export Initiative. But there are opportunities in every sector and Embassy London stands ready to support all American commercial interests with a comprehensive range of advice, assistance and advocacy." — Louis Susman, U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom.
