The United Kingdom will complete its departure from the European Union in December of this year. In doing so it will unlock opportunities in areas of foreign and economic policy that were otherwise unobtainable. Nowhere is this magnitude of potential more significant for an independent UK than the IndoPacific region; a part of the world experiencing significant economic dynamism, yet simultaneously afflicted with a volatile geopolitical context.
This report intends to put forward a positive vision of British engagement in the region. A vision defined by commercial prosperity and a value-determined foreign policy. It will confidently set out the inherent national strengths at the disposal of domestic policy makers, as well as the areas in need of renewed focus.
