Both countries will look to secure an advanced deal which will boost jobs and grow their economies.

It is understood that talks will focus on slashing tariffs and boosting trade in Britain’s world-leading services and technology economies.

Talks are also already underway with India and Canada for a post-Brexit trade agreement.

The Sun revealed this week that the Trade Secretary is set to sign the first US-mini deal with Indiana by the end of the month.
