UK's May Pledges to Boost Britain's Investments in Africa
Prime Minister Theresa May arrived in South Africa Tuesday, the first stop on a three nation visit, aimed at boosting post-Brexit trade ties.
May told an audience in Cape Town that Britain wants to boost national interest and deepen trade ties with the continent.
"I want to create a new partnership between the UK and our friends in Africa, one built around a shared prosperity and shared security," she said.
May will meet leaders in Nigeria Wednesday before wrapping up her trip in Kenya on Thursday.
The prime minister is traveling with a delegation of British government ministers and business representatives from various industries.
New Australian Cabinet sworn in Tuesday
The new Australian Cabinet was sworn in Tuesday in Canberra.
The new leaders are taking over following a week of political chaos and the selection of Australia's sixth prime minister in less than 10 years.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison's new Cabinet includes former Prime Minister Turnbull's loyalist Christopher Pyne as the new defense minister and the foreign minister position was given to former defense minister Marise Payne, following Julie Bishop's resignation.
David Coleman was installed as minister for immigration, citizenship and multicultural affairs. Senator Mathias Cormann, a one time Turnbull loyalist, will return as finance minister in Morrison's new Cabinet.
The cabinet also includes Bridget McKenzie, who will serve as minister for regional services, sport, local government and decentralization and Melissa Price as minister for the environment.
