LONDON, Feb 19 (Reuters) - Australia would welcome interest
from Britain in joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership regional
trade group after it leaves the European Union, Australian
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said on Monday.
Britain's trade minister Liam Fox said earlier this year
that joining the TPP was an option for the country after Brexit.
Bishop, speaking in London, also said Australia was keen to
pursue a free trade agreement with Britain as soon as it could.
