UK Foreign secretary Liz Truss will travel to Mexico to push for the country’s support for the UK to join an international trade pact.
It comes as the Prime Minister conceded an agreement was not about to be struck with the USA following meetings with President Joe Biden.
Boris Johnson played down the prospect of an imminent trade deal between the two countries earlier this week, saying that President Biden has “a lot of fish to fry”.
Newly appointed Ms. Truss will travel to Mexico from the United Nations General Assembly in New York, where she will focus on the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), and discuss plans to develop a new and updated deal between the UK and Mexico.
She will also formally open the new embassy in Mexico City after the previous one was damaged during the 2017 earthquake.
The CPTPP is a free trade agreement between 11 countries, including Australia, Canada, Japan, and Singapore.
