They discussed issues such as the US-China trade war, Brexit and the UK’s plans to increase its presence in the Asia-Pacific region. Morrison has also indicated that the two nations will act quickly to secure a free-trade agreement when Britain leaves the European Union. Britain is currently Australia’s eighth-largest trading partner and the second-largest source of direct foreign investment.
