Duty-free trade between the United States and the United Kingdom

Following the resolution of the S232 tariff dispute between the United States and the United Kingdom earlier this year, UK steel and aluminium exporters can now export tariff-free to the United States for the first time since 2018, the country's largest trading partner. Tariff reductions make UK imports cheaper for US consumers and businesses, and vice versa. Tariff reductions benefit, in particular, UK steel makers and US producers of Levi's jeans and Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The United Kingdom has suspended previously imposed additional duties on these products.
