The British Embassy has released the 4th edition of Sterling Assets. This yearly publication, developed in conjunction with the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), details the strong level of British investment throughout the United States as well as a state-by-state breakdown of US exports to the UK.

This year's report shows the UK remains the single largest foreign investor in the US supporting just over one million high-paying jobs. Furthermore, the UK is now the largest export destination in the EU and 5th largest destination in the world for US goods and services exports.

The report is attached or you may read more and view the report at:
