UK agrees dialogue partnership with south-east Asian trade bloc

The UK has agreed a new partnership with the south-east Asian bloc in a further sign of a post-Brexit shift away from Europe towards the Indo-Pacific region. The new agreement sees the UK become a dialogue partner of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean), increasing co-operation on issues including trade and the environment. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the closer relationship with the 10-member bloc was a “landmark moment” for the UK.
