Britain’s secretary of state for international trade, Liam Fox, met with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer in Washington, D.C., before visiting Houston to meet with representatives from the chemical, oil and gas industries.

With one of the largest ports in the country, Houston is on the forefront of global trade.

In 2016, Great Britain was Houston's 11th largest international trade partner, according to the Greater Houston Partnership.

That country's secretary of state for international trade, Liam Fox, recently traveled to the United States to start talks on a bilateral trade agreement for the time after the UK officially leaves the European Union.

After stops in Washington, D.C., and Mexico City, Fox made a stop in Houston.

He dropped by our studios for this week's Bauer Business Focus.
