The Rt Hon Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP, UK Minister of State (Indo-Pacific), at the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office
Minister of State (Indo-Pacific) at the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), The Rt Hon Anne-Marie Trevelyan, returns to Asia House to brief Corporate Members on the UK’s economic strategy on furthering its national interests and long-term security in the Indo-Pacific.
The Indo-Pacific is projected to generate more than half of all global growth by 2025. As the global economy shifts eastwards, the region is set to play a critical role in the UK’s future prosperity. The Integrated Review Refresh 2023 has set out the UK’s Indo-Pacific objectives, including plans to maintain a rules-based international order, whilst protecting its economic interests and trade routes. Minister Trevelyan will discuss the UK’s commitment to the region through its economic and trade cooperation with countries like Japan, Singapore, and Indonesia, and how it is sharing expertise to build stronger mutual investments.
Defence and security partnerships remain an integral part of the UK’s Indo-Pacific strategy, with geopolitical factors increasingly reshaping the region. How the UK will utilise alliances in the Indo-Pacific, such as AUKUS, to maintain stability and strengthen trade ties in the region will also be discussed.
This briefing will be held in-person for Asia House Corporate Members and moderated by Asia House Chief Executive Michael Lawrence OBE. To register interest, please email Lin Cong, Programme Producer: email@example.com
