The US Trade Representative’s (USTR) office  released a document late-Thursday, citing that the US laid out objectives for a trade deal with the UK that would ensure fair and balanced trade, cut tariff and non-tariff barriers for US industrial and agricultural goods and reduce regulatory differences, Reuters reports.

The office noted: The negotiating objectives, required by Congress under the “fast-track trade negotiating authority law, will seek to boost trade between the countries by eliminating tariff and non-tariff barriers.”

The United States will aim to “reduce burdens associated with unnecessary differences in regulation,” the document read.
