The Prime Minister heads to China today for the first of what will no doubt be the first of many international summits of World leaders. I expect the other Leaders will be as interested to meet Mrs May as she will them. Reports are that she will have meetings with President Xi of the hosts China, Russian President Putin and President Obama. As this is Theresa May’s first G20 summit it will be one of the last for the US President as he prepares to step down in January. Theresa May will be stressing that notwithstanding the UK’s decision to leave the European Union we are still very much open for business and a major player on the World stage.
I am attending what is being billed as the first ever Conference of Greater Manchester COnservatives today which will be interesting. I will report tomorrow on what was discussed.
