Joint Statement on UK - Indiana Memorandum of Understanding, Working Group.
The first Working Group enabled by the UK/Indiana Memorandum of Understanding took place in Indianapolis yesterday [Mon 12 December].
On Monday 12 December 2022, the UK and State of Indiana held the first government to government working group under the UK-Indiana Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on economic cooperation and trade relations, in Indianapolis.
Alan Gogbashian, Consul General for the United Kingdom in Chicago and Bradley Chambers, Secretary of Commerce for the State of Indiana, led a discussion focused on energy transition, sustainability and government procurement, which highlighted opportunities to deepen cooperation in these areas.
Since being signed at the Indiana Global Economic Summit in May 2022, the MoU has provided a framework for increased engagement on economic development, trade promotion and academic collaboration. In acknowledgment of the progress made to date, both sides agreed to expand the next working group session, to be held in early 2023, to involve representatives from industry, SMEs and academia as part of ongoing joint work to deliver mutual prosperity, underpin engagement and create jobs in the UK and Indiana.
