in United States

Trade barrier summary

This affects UK exporters looking to win contracts with Hawaii, United States. According to Hawaiian law, government agencies must give certain preferences to local goods and services seeking government contracts. Where reciprocal arranges are in place with another US state, then those bidders are also given a preference over out-of-state competing bidders. This reduces market access opportunities for UK exporters to the state.
