19 January 2021
A strong UK-ASEAN relationship is a critical part of our Indo-Pacific Tilt.
The UK has applied to become a Dialogue Partner of ASEAN. The Foreign Secretary attended the first UK-ASEAN Foreign Ministers Meeting in September to deepen cooperation on Covid-19, building a sustainable economic recovery, climate change and maritime security. The Foreign Secretary and I have engaged counterparts from Myanmar, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Cambodia, Singapore and Vietnam in recent months.
