May Pushes Free Trade Deals

BRITISH Prime Minister Theresa May sought to drum up trade deals yesterday for a post-Brexit world, as she came under increasing pressure from all sides to define what that would look like.

May met Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull at the G20 summit in China to talk a free trade deal and also said India, Mexico, South Korea and Singapore had all signalled they would “welcome” talks on removing trade barriers.

In the wake of its vote to leave the European Union, Britain must renegotiate its access to world markets, an issue currently handled for it by Brussels.

It is a huge task for the world’s fifth biggest economy, which is struggling to flesh out May’s oft-repeated slogan: “Brexit means Brexit”.
