TTP TALKS: Fox says ‘FOOLISH’ not to talk with pacific groups in veiled EU ...

The International Trade Secretary signalled signs Britain could be one step closer to joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), with members including Australia, Mexico, Singapore and Canada.

But Mr Fox said it was too soon to seek membership of the pact. 

He said: ”We don't know what the success of the TPP is going to look like, because it isn't yet negotiated. So it would be a little bit premature for us to be wanting to sign up to something that we're not sure what the final details will look like. 

"However, we have said that we want to be an open outward-looking country, and therefore it would be foolish for us to rule out any particular outcomes for the future. So we'll keep an open mind, and we'll want to talk to our global trading partners."
