KEMI Badenoch will tell New York big wigs Britain is back open for business in her first trade mission to the States.
The Trade Secretary will say the UK is going big for growth by canning the planned corporation tax rise – and now is the time to jump in and invest in UK PLC.
The former wannabe-PM will say Britain has the most innovative and creative economy in the world.
And she will continue to push for more state-by-state mini deals to boost trade and create more jobs.
A source said: “The government’s exciting new pro-growth agenda means there is no better time than now than to invest.
“Boosting transatlantic trade is just the start.” She will speak to 400 CEOs, Wall Street top brass and senior investors today at the Atlantic Future Forum – a summit aboard HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier.
And she will meet with Bloomberg and Microsoft, and hold her first trade talks with the US’ Katherine Tai.
She will say: “The UK is going for growth in a big way. And we want American partners to join our growth story and benefit from it.
“Just like Manhattan we’re an island full of dynamism and ingenuity. And the message I want to send here in the Big Apple – is that we’re the nation with big ideas.”
