British foreign minister Liz Truss will discuss new partnerships to invest in infrastructure in developing nations including Africa and Asia, while on her visit to Saudi Arabia and Qatar this week, the government said on Thursday.

Britain will discuss projects that could include building water and energy networks, ports and roads.

“This should be a win-win-win deal for the UK, the Gulf, and countries across Africa and Asia that will create jobs, improve lives, and benefit British and Gulf businesses operating in the region,” Truss said in the statement. (Reporting by Aakriti Bhalla in Bengaluru; Editing by Jacqueline Wong)
