WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Britain and the United States both have “high ambition” to reach agreement on services, investment and digital trade as part of bilateral trade talks that began this month, Britain’s international trade department said on Monday.

In a statement, it said an initial round of trade talks with Washington that concluded Friday was “positive and constructive,” putting significant emphasis on recovery from the current novel coronavirus pandemic.

A next round of talks was slated for June 15-22, the statement said.
