Britain Rekindles Ties With Asia

The Right Honorable Hugo Swire MP, British Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, joins us on the breakfast grille.

We discuss:

- Britain's recent increased interest in the region

- why the UK is appealing to investors

- whether the UK's importance in the world is waning

- Mr Swire's key takeaways from his visit to the region
