Theresa May’s first visit to meet Donald Trump could mean big things for the Northern Powerhouse. A special trade relationship between the US and the UK could give the northern England economy a massive boost.
One US trade expert has quoted as saying that the North of England could help the UK become a ‘Singapore on steroids’ if the right trade relationship between the UK and US develops.
The potential exposure to the US market could mean big things for the north. Multinational companies that have in the past looked to London to base operations and infrastructure may now be considering a move further north. Improved transport links and economic investment in flagship cities like Manchester could mean US investment in this region especially in the emerging digital and technology sectors.
