“Described in 2017 as the second most powerful woman in UK politics, Arlene Foster made her first appearance on BBC Newsnight aged 17, after her school bus was bombed by the PIRA,” notes Foster’s website.

Having lived through a terrorist attack at a young age, Baroness Foster knew that she wanted to be a leader of change in Northern Ireland. Throughout her career in politics, she has held several positions—Minister for the Environment, Minister for the Department of Enterprise Trade and Investment, and Minister for Finance and Personnel, to name a few. Most recently, she held the position of First Minister of Northern Ireland. Drawing on these recent experiences, Baroness Foster will highlight post-Brexit benefits to transatlantic trade and endorse a U.S.-U.K. Free Trade Agreement in a conversation with Heritage Senior Trade Policy Analyst Andrew Hale.


In addition to currently sitting in the House of Lords, Baroness Foster is also a presenter on GB News. In keeping with her lifelong campaign against terrorism, she has recently used her platforms to call out the antisemitism and pro-Hamas positions of the left-wing parties in the U.K. and Ireland.
