UK looking east for trade, signals Cameron on eve of South East Asia tour
July 27 , 2015
British Prime Minister David Cameron hopes to clinch business agreements worth over $1.2 billion during his South East Asia tour. More than 30 business leaders from the UK are accompanying him on the trip, which begins in Indonesia.
Cameron has emphasized that Britain needs to look east for greater trading opportunities as “90% of global growth is expected to come from outside Europe” over the next two decades. The threat of Islamist militant groups and climate change will also be on the prime minister’s agenda during the trip.
