Liz Truss – 2021 Comments on CPTPP Membership

The comments made by Liz Truss, the Secretary of State for International Trade on 2 June 2021.

CPTTP membership is a huge opportunity for Britain. It will help shift our economic centre of gravity away from Europe towards faster-growing parts of the world, and deepen our access to massive consumer markets in the Asia-Pacific.

We would get all the benefits of joining a high-standards free trade area, but without having to cede control of our borders, money or laws.
