"I want us to build a worldwide network of liberty that advances freedom, democracy and enterprise and encourages like-minded countries to work together from a position of strength," Truss added.

The usual mantra of neoliberal globalization, which has led to a massive increase in wealth inequality and the ecological destruction of the planet.

Top of their agenda will be:

How to curb Chinese expansionism in the region.

What to do if (or when) China invades Taiwan.

How to persuade China to release the millions of people they are currently holding in their 're-education camps'.

How to allow the people of Hong Kong to continue their long traditions of freedom of speech and democracy.

How to stop China converting Tibet to a Chinese province.

If they can come up with some conclusive directives in their closing presentation on all of the above, then there will be worldwide acclamation for them - if not, it will be a total waste of time.
