UK — FreshMinds CEO Caroline Plumb is on a trade delegation to south east Asia led by David Cameron.

The four-day trip is intended to promote UK trade and investment in the region; Cameron will also reportedly look to jump start negotiation talks on a free trade agreement between the EU and ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations).

Plumb is representing FreshMinds and the UK research industry as a whole on the trip.

“British companies like FreshMinds are flying the flag and unlocking the economic potential of the fast growing economies of South East Asia,” said Cameron. “I’m delighted that they have joined me on my first trade mission of this government and I hope that we can work together to create jobs and growth for the UK.”
