This article reports on the criticism made by U.S. transportation secretary Rodney Slater against Great Britain following the failure of the latest round of talks on aviation liberalization. According to him, while the U.S. is moving forward in breaking down barriers around the globe, the aviation agreement with Great Britain remains one of the most restrictive in the world. He believes that the U.S. government has invested significant time and effort to liberalize the agreement, and have raised the problems with this relationship to the highest levels of government in both countries. He also believes that due to the inaction of the government of Great Britain, the economy of the country, consumers and airlines pay the price of stagnation, as economies all around them secure the price and service benefits of competition.
